doc.: 18-14/0021 Submission March, 2014 Michael Lynch, MJ Lynch & Associates LLCSlide 2 Overview This document reports on the regulatory matters considered and outputs from the March, 2014 meeting held in Beijing, PRC. The RR-TAG is input driven. The attendance varies depending on the topics, documents being considered and meeting location. There was a document completed by the RR-TAG after the official closing of the meeting. That document, 18-14-0019-02 (the version as submitted to 3GPP) is available on.18’s Mentor web site. It should be noted that earlier in the meeting the RR-TAG had voted 1/8/0 in a straw pole not to send the original proposed liaison. While the edited version was approved by the EC, and the content is in support of IEEE 802’s goals, it is was never voted/approved by the RR-TAG. For several meetings final approval of documents and meeting closing has been in AM2. Work to be done at the next meeting will cause 802.18 to plan on working Thursday PM1 and PM2. The meeting approved the 802.18 chair convening conference calls to deal with regulatory matters that come up between Plenary sessions.

WP5D will hold their next meeting in Halifax, Nova Scotia beginning 18 June. –This item was mistakenly not submitted to the EC for approval at the March Plenary. Therefor it will be submitted for a ten day EC email ballot. –The document must be submitted to the ITU-R by 11 June.

The vote was: –Vote: 4 Yes 0 No 0 Abstain –There was only one candidate for Vice Chair, Rich Kennedy. The vote was: –Vote: 3 Yes 0 No 1 Abstain –Mr. Kennedy will serve as Vice Chair (pro tem) until he can provide sponsorship letters for his role as the Vice Chair and support of IEEE 802 in the ITU-R. –Mr. John Notor has kindly agreed to remain for one or two meetings as a Mentor to the newly elected Vice Chair. The Chair has appointed Mr. Notor as First Vice Chair.

This process may take several meetings. The RR-TAG will review the newly adopted FCC proposal on privately owned and operated drones. –There appears to be some concern about jamming, both in the 2.4 GHz frequency band, which is very important to IEEE 802, and to GPS which may be incorporated in various devices utilizing IEEE 802 technologies. The RR-TAG will review the ITU-R WRC-15 preparatory work, first in the US where it appears the U.S. government is taking a position against opening the mid 5 GHz frequency band, and the outcome of the work in another ITU-R group that may recommend inclusion of license exempt frequency bands for IMT Advanced. 802.18 is contribution driven and it is expected that other matters will present themselves by the time of the May meeting in Waikoloa.
