  • 50 individuals were present

  • The following informational items were addressed:

    • Pitch for urgent need for activity in the 5 GHz ITU-R work

    • Rules changes at various levels to streamline the submittal of position papers

    • the establishment of a Memorandum of Understanding between the IEEE and the ITU-R


Report of the regulatory ad hoc group november 2000

Recommendations from Information items

  • Encourage members to informally reference the spectrum interest of IEEE 802 in their contacts with the FCC

  • To inform /engage the 802 Regulatory ombudsman wherever actions from LMSC was requested

  • To engage a related Interest Group like WECA in contracting a Law Firm to do the actual analysis and reporting work in close cooperation with LMSC

  • That the preparatory work towards output papers by the ad-hoc RR group be reviewed and approved in the related Radio Working Groups.


Report of the regulatory ad hoc group november 2000

Actions required for this week

  • follow-up on a request from the FCC to get input from IEEE 802 regarding spread spectrum rules and part 15 rules

  • an ad-hoc group was empowered to follow-up and prepare a position paper for review and approval by the various Working Groups


Motion for ad hoc group work

  • There is drive from industry to provide Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum Systems with increased data rates which require the use of modulation schemes providing higher spectral efficiency.

  • The current requirements for operating under 15.247 are sufficiently ambiguous such that the FCC must judge on a case by case basis which of these systems comply with the spirit of the regulations as written.


Introduction to position paper 2
