> Letter Ballot #2, ("To approve Document IEEE 802.16.2/D1-2000 and 
> forward it for Sponsor Ballot") ran from 11-17 to 12-27-2000. The results were:
> Approve: 69   Disapprove: 4   Approval Ratio: 94.5% [75% required]
> Abstain: 10   Members: 134    Return Ratio:   61.9% [50% required]
> Comments: 147

> Approve: 70   Disapprove: 3   Approval Ratio: 95.9% [75% required]
> Abstain: 10   Members: 134    Return Ratio:   61.9% [50% required]
> Comments: 23

> Abstain: 10   Members: 134    Return Ratio:  61.9% [50% required]
