I'm not sure there's a mechanism for this now that the ballot is out
but... Can we hold off on this a few days?
I have a potential source for FREE APs. I'm trying to determine with
Tim, whether they would measure up to his standards. They are A/B/G's,
SNMP manageable, etc... but the devil's in the details.
And best of all they will be FREE! ! !
Can I have a few days to look into this?
(the budget needs all the help it can get).
P.S. If this offer for FREE APs doesn't come to pass, I still have some
reservations (even though I agreed to second). I would want to see a
budget (no blank checks please) and I still have reservations about
giving away wireless cards (again, budget, and liability concerns).

Dear EC Members,
This is a email ballot to make a determination on the below motion.
"Whereas our Network Manager, Tim Godfrey, has recommended that we
proceed with acquisition of the 802.11a modules for our Cisco 1200 APs
that are not currently so equipped, and that we make an effort to
encourage our attendees to migrate to 802.11a for reduced congestion:
I move that we proceed to acquire those additional 802.11a modules (20),
and further that we investigate a promotional deal to encourage more of
our attendees to upgrade to Tri-Mode (802.11b, 11g, 11a) interface
cards, which would also allow us to regulate client transmit power
levels in dense configurations. Terms of deal will be reviewed with the
Network Services Advisory Committee, and presented for final approval by
the 802 EC prior to implementation."
The ballot opens 7PM ET Sunday 24 July 2005 and closes Friday 19 August
