Thank you Roger, 
I will incorporate all your edits, look good as always.  I did look up the trademark and found this: 

Wi-Fi CERTIFIED WiGig™ expands the Wi-Fi® experience for virtual reality, ... WiGig®  

The comments use  all, so will be sure to add TM or R first time used.

Dear EC Members,


I would like to announce the start of an EC ballot to the ACMA Consultation on Proposed updates to class licensing arrangements supporting 5G and other technology innovations, which includes 60 GHz. The deadline for comments is 22 February 2019 in Australia.


Paul has delegated to me to conduct an EC 5 day early close electronic ballot on the motion below. To ensure this motion is decided early enough to allow for the deadline, I'm requesting an 'early close' to this ballot (see below).


This EC motion is per 802 OM 7.2 Procedure for communication with government bodies.


Move to approve the comments in to ACMA’s (Australian Communications and Media Authority) IFC 45/2018 Class licensing updates consultation.  With the chair of 802.18 to have editorial privileges and send to the ACMA on or before 20 February 2019 PT.


Approved in the TAG:  5 / 0 / 0


Mover:      Jay Holcomb

Seconder:   Dorothy Stanley


Start of ballot: 15 February 2019

Close of ballot: 20 February 2019


Reference information, as sent in email on 01 February:



[1] The proposed variation considers updating and expending 60 GHz arrangements (57-66 GHz) for data communication systems, including 5G. Specifically:

adding 66-71 GHz frequency band

updating existing arrangement in 57-66 GHz regarding indoor and outdoor data communication systems.

[2] adding new arrangements for "All transmitters" in the 57-64 GHz band.

[3] revising arrangements for underground transmitters in certain bands supporting fixed and mobile services between 70-520 MHz.

[4] adding support for higher power radiodetermination transmitters i.e. radars operating in the 76-77 GHz frequency band [5] adding support for ground and wall penetration radar as adjunct to current apparatus licence arrangements (30-12400 MHz) [6] aligning existing arrangements for ultra-wideband devices with US and European arrangements for generic (indoor and hand-held) devices (3100-3400 MHz  and 8500-9000 MHz) and aircraft applications (6000-8500 MHz).

And further inputs from members:

• Proposed UWB rules look to be positive.

• Supporting the mmWave band expansion, considering both 802.11 and 802.15.3 systems are being     implemented and deployed which the expanded 60 GHz band.

• May also want to look at [2] above to see if there are any negative impacts on the 802.11 and 802.15.3 mmWave based systems.

Early close: As required in subclause 4.1.2 'Voting rules' of the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee (LMSC) Operations Manual, this is notice that, to ensure the release is provided in a timely manner, this ballot may close early once sufficient responses are received to clearly decide a matter.
