Dear EC Members:
On January 23rd I sent out this ECM, asking for expedited response, which set the close date as January 28th; last Sunday. We received a total of eight votes.
There is still a chance that we can get this to Ofcom on time, if members vote today. IEEE 802.18 would appreciate your attention to this matter.

Subject: [802SEC] +++ ECM: IEEE P802.18 response to Ofcom consultation +++
Dear EC Members,
At the January IEEE 802 Wireless Interim, members of the RR-TAG developed and approved responses to question from the Ofcom consultation on Fixed Wireless Spectrum Strategy. Although fixed wireless technologies are not represented in IEEE 802 standards, the spectrum implications potentially could have an impact, requiring us to respond.
The consultation: https://mentor.ieee.org/802.18/dcn/18/18-18-0003-00-0000-ofcom-fixed-wireless-spectrum-strategy.pdf
The group approved https://mentor.ieee.org/802.18/dcn/18/18-18-0009-02-0000-ofcom-questions-and-answers-fixed-wireless-spectrum-strategy.ppt, by a vote of 10/0/0. An r3 was created to help voters to navigate through the consequential responses. No changes were made to the approved text.
Before submittal, these approved responses will be put into the Ofcom consultation format.
Mr. Paul Nikolich has therefore delegated the conduct of the EC electronic ballot on the following motion to me. As the closing date for the consultation is February 1, 2018, I am asking for an expedited review and approval.
Motion: Approve the responses in document https://mentor.ieee.org/802.18/dcn/18/18-18-0009-03-0000-ofcom-questions-and-answers-fixed-wireless-spectrum-strategy.ppt as the IEEE 802 input to the Ofcom Fixed Wireless Strategy consultation, to be submitted to Ofcom on or before February 1, 2018 in their format.
Approved in the TAG 10/0/0
Moved by Rich Kennedy
Seconded by Adrian Stephens
