Re: [802SEC] Get802 program has been restored to former terms andconditions through May 15


Can you please help straighten out some issues with the GetIEEE802 
web listings?

IEEE Std 802.16.2 was published on 10 September 2001. Seven months 
later, it's still not listed in the GetIEEE802 program: 

If you follow the links to order the hard or soft copies:

you see a message that "This IEEE 802 standard is available at no 
charge in pdf format at: <>". 
However, that link is incorrect. If you use the correct link 
<>, you see that 802.16 is not 

On the other hand, if you guess the URL by analogy, you find that the 
standard really IS available for free download:

I hope that IEEE can look for other inconsistencies in the program 
while this problem is being fixed.
