IEEE 802.11a met Conditional Approval criteria

Dear Colleagues,

I am back from vacation and would like to confirm the successful 3rd
recirculation ballot of 802.11a.

Thanks to the work of 802.11 Vice-Chair Stuart Kerry, acting as chair while
I was on vacation, the  proposed standard 802.11a is on the agenda of the
September 1999 RevCom meeting. This was already reported by Stuart and is in
concert with the motion passed at the closing July 1999 SEC meeting for
Conditional Approval to forward a draft.

The tally is as follows (old tally in brackets)
Number of people in Ballot Group of 802.11a  : 92 (92)
Number of votes received                                : 86 (84)
Return ratio = 93 %  (required >= 75 %)
Affirmative: 78 (77)
Disapproved with comments  : 1 (1)
Approval ratio = 98 %  (required => 75 %)
Abstain (Lack of Time)        : 4 (3)
Abstain (Lack of Expertise) : 3
Abstain (Other)                   : 0
Abstention ratio = 8 (6) %  (required < 30 %)

We received one editorial comment that was withdrawn by the voter during the
comment resolution meeting and no new Disapprove votes.

The remaining Disapprove comment from prior ballots was not supported. (see

Thanks Stuart!
