Faisel, Thanks for the input. An industry group (who wishes to remain anonymous at this point) approached WISPA to see if we would be an opponent of this proposal since we are essentially the incumbents in the 6Ghz Part 101 space, or a supporter.
My thought is that we have far more to gain from supporting the (admittedly incomplete) proposal by obtaining far more PTMP spectrum than we lose. I would like to respond on behalf of WISPA with enthusiastic support for the idea but I want to get a feel from the membership before endorsing the concept.
