REGS/ FW: Possible challenge to FCC 5 GHz rules

FYI ...

I am forwarding this message for your information.

I was also on a conference call today in which an
NTIA representative confirmed the fact that NTIA
is likely to petition the FCC to reopen the U-NII
rules (they have not done so yet, but it appears
likely that they will do so in the near future.)
