Hi Rob,

I think you are correct in what the TAC is looking for, but some of the 
questions are aimed at a methodology for studying the problem.  Only a 
few questions are aimed at technical studies on the subject.  I am 
afraid if not many people respond, the conclusion will be that there is 
no problem and nothing will be done.  One could just copy the question 
part of the TAC request and just answer the questions that they are able 
to answer.  A few questions answered is better than no response at all.

73,   Tom   W0IVJ
