stds-80220-ch-models: CHAN: Pointer to information for conference call

Channel Modelers,

Qiang has asked me to lead a discussion on the effects of channel
characteristics, particularly delay spread, on PHY layer parameters.

As a background reference, please refer to contribution C802.20-03/48,
of which I am a co-author.  The full set of authors and affiliations
for this document are as follows:

Section 5 of this contribution discusses the effects of various
channel characteristics, including delay spread, on the choice of
parameters for OFDM systems. It may be useful as background material,
although I emphasize that the discussion is only vis a vis OFDM

I will "lead" the discussion by simply summarizing, very briefly,
a few general observations about delay spread, and then opening the
floor for general discussion. Suggested topics are: Effects of delay
spread on various systems, and ballpark numbers that people would like
to see wind up in the MBWA channel model set.
