(1:30 PM Pacific Time)


Whitespace Members,


Today will be our first Face to Face meeting!   Coupled with that we
will attempt to provide teleconference / webex.  


Please see webex / teleconference details below which will be good for
all three days we meet this week.


Because of the complexities of hosting a combined in-person / electronic
meeting I will require certain etiquettes be followed.   I will review
the full list tomorrow when we begin the meeting, but the main one is
PLEASE use the webex if you want to talk on the teleconference.  We will
be using webex to control the queue for the floor, so you can't request
the floor if you aren't on the webex.  If you want to dial in and be
listen only, that is fine.  


Finally, this is an experiment.  IEEE 802 does not normally permit
electronic participation at face to face (F2F) meetings.  The goal is to
be fair to all participants (electronic and F2F).  However, F2F
participants pay a substantial sum of money to participate in these
meetings, so if problems arise on the teleconference F2F participants
will be given priority.  Regardless of the result, we should learn a


Looking forward to interacting with everyone later today!
