[802SEC] 802.18 document for 5 day SEC review

Dear SEC Members,

Attached you will find document 18-02-024r0_802.18_Rep_Cmts_02-98.doc
which I am submitting to the SEC for the required 5 day review prior to
with the FCC, in accordance with LMSC rules.

Today, Aug. 7, 2002, a duly-noticed teleconference meeting of 802.18
was held, as authorized by the SEC at the Vancouver closing SEC
meeting, in order to review, revise, and approve the attached document.

A quorum was present, with 11 of 802.18's 15 current voting members
in attendance, including the Chairs of 802.11, 802.16, and 802.18.
Additionally, all 3 wireless working groups were represented in the

After review and some revisions to d0 of the draft document, version d1
was approved unanimously by roll call vote (with the Chair of 802.18
abstaining, as his vote would have made no difference in the outcome).
The Chair of 802.18 was also empowered by the motion and vote to
make any necessary editorial corrections and to incorporate some
purely editorial changes submitted by Roger Marks.  The results of
these editorial changes is reflected in the document attached as r0.

Thus the provisions of the LMSC TAG rules that such documents
be achieve a 75% approval of those voting members present was
more than achieved.

For your information, the substance of this document is entirely
consistent with the original comments filed by IEEE 802, after
approval in Vancouver by  the TAG, all 3 wireless WGs, and the SEC.

Since the filing deadline for Reply Comments is Tue., Aug. 13th,
it was decided by the members of the TAG that, due to the short
time frame, filing of the document as a TAG filing would be sufficient,
because of concerns that an SEC letter ballot of such short duration
might fail to achieve the required 2/3 approval because of "Did Not
Votes" that would equate to "Disapproves" under LMSC rules.

According to LMSC rules for TAG filings, if no member of the SEC
makes a motion to block the filing of this document by 11:59 pm EDT
on Mon., Aug.12th, I will file the formal version of the document, with
a suitable cover letter and reformatting, as authorized by the vote of
the TAG, on the deadline date of Aug. 13th.

If you have any questions regarding the document's contents, or the
approval procedure conducted by the TAG, please inform me ASAP
so that your questions can be resolved.

I will be leaving Thu. afternoon to travel to Washington for meeings
on Friday, returning Friday evening.  I will check e-mail as often as
possible, but if anyone has any major issues, please call me on my
cellphone in order to minimize delay in resolution.  I will also be
checking e-mail and will be available at my home office or via my
cellphone over the coming weekend.
