FW: [802SEC] 802.16a Approved as an IEEE Standard

Dear SEC:

P802.16a/D7 hsa been approved as IEEE Standard 802.16a.

This was a long process, beginning with a Study Group created in
November 1999. Thanks to the SEC for your patience.

This project required the help of many, and the continuing attention
of 802.16a Chair Brian Kiernan and Technical Editor Nico Van Waes. I
also had a lot of hep and advice from Howard Frazier.

The original (Feb 2000) PAR targeted a RevCom submittal date of 31
March 2002. We ran seven months late but, all in all, this wasn't so
