Similar to my vote on SEC BALLOT #1, I vote disapprove on this ballot.

The disapprove is on the grounds the letter to the FCC is written in a way
that it gives the incorrect impression the entire 802 membership has
analyzed the NPRM and come to the conclusions presented in the letter.  The
letter should be revised to accurately characterize the fact that a subset
of 802.11 voted in favor of the positions developed in the letter.  The
multiple references to 'the Committee' in the letter should be changed to
'xxx members of the Working Groups 802.11'.

Additionally, the letter should be revised to more crisply support the
position of the members of 802.11 along the lines of what Roger Marks
suggested on the other ballot.
