Dear LMSC Members,
From the email I sent on 17may, I would like to announce the start
of an EC ballot on a
response to the FCC on 5GAA’s 05 April 2019 ex parte requesting the FCC to
re-configure the U-NII-4, 5.9 GHz band, for even more of the band to C-V2X
(cellular). This is a further reduction for DSRC from their original request
for waiver last November (we commented on).
The ex parte would reduce DSRC (IEEE 802.11p) to only a single 10MHz
5GAA also filed this ex parte under the original proceeding that lead up to
DSRC and all, docket ET 13-49 (U-NII) Devices in the 5 GHz Band. This request came after the RR-TAG vote,
though I would like to file the same comments in that docket also.
Paul has delegated to me to conduct a LMSC Early Close 10-day
electronic ballot on the motion below to approve our 5GAA ex parte response to
the FCC. This EC motion is per 802 OM
7.2 Procedure for communication with government bodies.
Motion: Move to approve
the response to the FCC in https://mentor.ieee.org/802.18/dcn/19/18-19-0064-03-0000-5gaa-ex-parte-05apr19-response-ieee-802-fcc-gn-18-357.docx to
5GAA’s 05 April 2019 ex parte to the FCC. With the chair of 802.18 to have
editorial privileges and send to the FCC under GN 18-357 and ET 13-49.
Approved in the TAG: 9 / 0
/ 1 to send to FCC
Mover: Jay Holcomb
Start of ballot: 31 May 2019

From the FCC sites:
5GAA Ex Parte Notice 4.5.19.pdf 49Opens a New Window.
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.
Sufficient responses to clearly decide this matter will be based on the
required majority for a motion under subclause 7.1.1 'Actions requiring
approval by a majority vote' item (h), 'Other motions brought to the floor by
members (when deemed in order by the Sponsor Chair)' of the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN
Standards Committee (LMSC) Policies and Procedures.
mentioned in email on 17th, the RR-TAG passed a second motion to
send the same comments to the US DoT, and logistics for that have taken some
time and are just now being finalized, why the delay to start balloting. It was
decided in this week's RR-TAG’s teleconference to start the FCC ballot and will
run the ballot for the DoT submission soon.
