Dear LMSC Members,
With this email I would like to announce the start of the second of two LMSC(EC) ballots on a response to the 5GAA’s 05 April 2019 ex parte requesting the FCC to re-configure the U-NII-4, 5.9 GHz band for much less DSRC/802.11p. This one is for the US DoT.
Note: there has been some feedback that the DoT is anxious to see these comments.
