Note: TVWS and 5.9 GHz spectrum was brought up since not in ICASA’s consultation,  though when we did get started and just a few days to put all together, time allowed focus on the contribution text that came and we didn't have text for these and out of time. it is understood the TVWS alliance will be doing some comments on importance of TVWS.
