RE: [802SEC] +++Forward P802.16/D4-2001 for Sponsor Ballot NOTE SHORT RESPONSE TIME NEEDED.
I vote to approve this motion. I think Roger has been extremely meticulous in following
all procedures necessary and that the draft needs and deserves to go forward.

> -One was nonbinding (the vote is Approve). Comment was outside scope;
> it was on a topic not subject to recirc.
> -One was binding (balloter went from Approve to Disapprove). The

> 802.16a standard, which covers 2-11 GHz and assumes narrower
