Letter to be filed at the FCC for comments on NPRM
I had asked that Ian Gifford to pass-on the FCC draft letter to Ben Manny at
the HomeRF and he received the following response.
What response should IEEE 802.11 provide?
1) Just send the letter as-approved to the FCC. The due date is end of
2) Meet with HomeRF at the September Rosa interim meeting and discuss with
HomeRF the issues and then send letter to the FCC (I am sure the SEC would
It is my belief that the stature of IEEE 802.11 will have much stronger
status with the FCC if IEEE is seen as facilitating discussions between
different factions. At the very least we should be prepared to meet with
HomeRF and discuss the FCC response.

Subject: RE: Letter to be files at the FCC for comments on NPRM
Thanks for getting back to me on having the HomeRF working group answer
questions and address concerns regarding the Wide band FH NPRM reflected in
the draft FCC letter that was attached. Based on the objections raised in
the letter, I believe the most effective why to work through them would be
for our technical committee to participate in the IEEE 802 review of the
letter that you indicate below. How is this review being done? Will there
be a teleconf. or meeting to review comments that are received on the
proposed letter? Will the letter be reviewed on voted on at the September
IEEE meeting in Santa Rosa? We can provide written comments to the letter,
but would like an opportunity to explain these comments to the interested
IEEE members or at least know how the comments will be considered by IEEE.
