(1) This is a revision of document IEEE 802.16c-99/02. The previous 
version was issued on 5 November 1999.

(2) I had some problems in converting this to PDF, so a few of the 
graphs have have some minor problems. I'll try to get a better 

(3) You may be interested in the status of this project.

The minutes the Coexistence Task Group issued after Session #5 noted 
that Thursday afternoon "was devoted to updating the timeline for 
completion of the practice; this revised timeline will be presented 
at the Plenary on Friday." As noted in the 802.16 Session #5 minutes, 
the Coexistence Task Group did discuss, in the Closing Plenary, a 
revised timeline that would entail submitting a draft to the IEEE-SA 
by about 14 July 2000. 802 Chair Jim Carlo commented on the 
importance of the letter ballot process, highlighting the key role of 
Session #6 in staying on schedule. One critical aspect of the plan 
was sending the document to Working Group Letter Ballot soon after 
Session #6.

Since Session #5, I have not been able to obtain a copy of the 
timeline and do not recall the specific details of the plan. Based on 
the information I have been able to gather and on my recollection of 
the timeline, it appears to me as if the project is significantly 
behind schedule. I informed the Task Group leadership team on 11 
February that I was presuming the project was well behind schedule 
and that the Task Group would therefore not be submitting a draft for 
Working Group Letter Ballot after Session #6. I added that, if my 
presumption was incorrect, the team should let me know and begin 
developing a plan to get the project on track.

At this point, I would guess that a 14 July 2000 submission date to 
IEEE is out of the question.

I welcome any comments as to the status of the project, the timeline 
that was discussed or adopted at Session #5, the feasibility of that 
timeline, and a possible new timeline that might be adopted and made 
available to the Working Group participants. I encourage those with 
an interest in timely completion of the document to participate more 
intensely in the project so as to accelerate its completion.
