I confused by the answer below.
It is my understanding that the 2500-2690 MHz band is allocated to IMTS2000. What is the relationship to space services? I do realize that there is a proposed position to allow individual authorities to waive this allocation and use the band for other purposes. However, I am not aware of any space services sharing with terrestrial services proposals. I will appreciate any update on my understanding.
I also suggest an editorial change on the third paragraph of the "Introduction." The statement in the second sentence "....this standard will be a significant part of future broadband wireless services...." is conjecture. It does seem necessary nor appropriate for one standards body to send another standards body conjecture.
I request that the complete sentence be deleted.
Finally were the 802.16e estimates included in the tables approved by the Task Group members?
I vote disapprove pending answers to my questions and editorial request.

Good question. Since this is not obvious, I'll copy the EC.
The submittal is intended for ITU-R Joint Task Group 6-8-9, whose
purpose is to prepare a draft addressing WRC-07 Agenda Item 1.9: "to

In other words, they are studying issues related to the sharing of
this band between satellite and terrestrial services. One of the
specific topics includes "Characteristics of terrestrial systems". We
provided some initial information for their previous meeting, and
they they are looking for additional detail. That's what's in the
