Dear EC Voting
Nikolich has delegated the conduct of the following EC electronic ballot to
me, due to extraordinary circumstances.
While the ballot is
*technically* a 10 day EC electronic ballot, as a practical matter there
is a deadline of 0600 EST Friday, March 19th for filing the attached
document with the ITU-R and I also need time to
coordinate IEEE-SA approval with Terry deCourcelle of the IEEE-SA staff before
transmitting it to the ITU-R Secretariat in Geneva
Paul has ruled that
this ballot will close as soon as it receives 100% voter response, providing
that the last vote is not a "DIS", since comments attached to a "DIS" vote could
conceivably persuade others to change their "APP" votes to "DIS" votes ...
Please remember that the ballot will not close without 100% response and
cast your vote promptly.
apologize for the short notice - while I was not presented with the substance of
this document in a timely manner, I believe that a timely submittal
to the ITU-R is appropriate and desirable in the interest of furthering the
acceptance of IEEE 802 wireless standards in the ITU-R.
document, for which I am seeking your approval, is purely informational and
non-controversial, but never the less important to submit to the upcoming
meeting of ITU-R JTG 6-8-9, and I urge you to promptly cast your "APP" vote
so that it may be transmitted to Geneva in a timely fashion.
Note that the EC
approval motion below is conditional on the approval of the document by
IEEE 802.18, which has not yet occurred due to the late delivery of the
substance of the document to me, but that I fully anticipate that the document
WILL be approved by 802.18 shortly after 0800 EST on Thursday,
March 18th, when 802.18 reconvenes. I am submitting this conditional approval
motion in parallel solely in the interest of facilitating the meeting of
the filing deadline, and the document will NOT be transmitted to Geneva without the
approval of 802.18, the EC, and Terry deCourcelle of the
pre-coordinated with Jim Carlo on this and have his explicit approval to send
the document to the ITU-R *if* 802.18, the EC, and Terry
deCourcelle all approve.
I will also take
steps to make sure that everyone possible understands that, in the future, such
late requests will not be looked on favorably and will only be acted on in the
most exceptional of circumstances.
the attached document, ieee-jtg689.doc, as an IEEE 802 document, conditional on
the approval of IEEE 802.18, and to authorize the Chair of IEEE 802.18 to
seek approval from the designated IEEE-SA officials to transmit the document to
the ITU-R Secretariat before the submittal deadline of 1200 Geneva time
(0600 EST), on Friday, March 19, 2004 for consideration by the upcoming
meeting of ITU-R JTG 6-8-9.
Carl R. Stevenson, Chair, IEEE 802.18
Buzz Rigsbee, Executive Secretary IEEE 802
Again, I apologize
for submitting this ballot on such short notice, but urge you to promptly cast
an "APP" vote so that the document may be transmitted to Geneva in a timely
If you have
questions for me regarding this motion or the document, please seek me out or
call me on my cellphone ASAP.
Regards and thanks
in advance for your prompt cooperation and assistance, as well as your tolerance
