a quick update of the latest events relating to the upcoming WISPNOG

1. Trango Executive Management Hosts Operator Roundtable

Chuck Eapen, Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing for Trango
Broadband, will be hosting a round-table discussion session designed to give
new and existing Trango users the opportunity to interact with the Executive
Management of Trango Broadband and to learn Trango's position and opinion
regarding upcoming wireless standards (i.e., WiMAX), customer "best
practices," the exciting new Atlas Product Line and Trango's "Roadmap to
WiMAX." A good portion of this session will be devoted to Q&A, giving
attendees plenty of opportunity to "chat with Chuck."

2. Hotel Information

There has recently been some confusion regarding room rates at the WISPNOG
venue.  To clear up any misunderstanding, we have reserved a block of rooms
at a rate of $90 night at the Holiday Inn Resort for evening of February 16
and 17, 2005.  Use hotel code: CWLAB to get this rate.
