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.
