[802SEC] IEEE 802 News Bulletin Information from 802.18

Title: Message
The IEEE 802.18 Radio Regulatory Technical Advisory Group met in conjunction with the March IEEE 802 Plenary in Orlando, Florida.
During the session, 802.18 prepared and approved comments to the FCC on both the "Interference Temperature" and "Cognitive Radio" NPRMs.
Both documents were also approved by the 802.11, 802.15, 802.16, and 802.20 wireless working groups, and then by the 802 Executive Committee as the views of IEEE 802, and the Chair of 802.18 was authorized to file them with the FCC in a timely fashion.
802.18's Study Group 1 (unlicensed use of unused TV broadcast spectrum) also met during the plenary session and considerable progress was made towards consensus on many issues, leading up to the preparation of a PAR and 5 Criteria.  The study group plans to continue to progress the discussions by correspondence, and perhaps a teleconference or two, between now and the May interim session, with the goal of approving a PAR and 5 Criteria in May for submission to the 802 Executive Committee at the July plenary, seeking their approval to forward the PAR and 5 Criteria to NESCOM.
802.18, the 802 Executive Commitee, and the relevant officials of the IEEE-SA also approved an informational input contribution on the 802.16 standard and submitted the document to ITU-R Joint Task Group 6-8-9, which is meeting at ITU Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland the week of March 20th.
