Re: [802SEC] +++EC Email Ballot+++ Motion for Network Equipment Upgradesl+++ends 19 August 2005

I approve the purchase of the 'a' modules for the current access points and 
I hope John is successful on getting more APs.  We need both and they are 
not mutually exclusive.

I do not approve the purchase of any client cards, tri-mode or 
otherwise.  We should make everyone aware we have a complete 'a' network 
and encourage people to come with own for the best possible network experience.
