PAGING TECHNICAL COMMITTEE MEETING IN STATTLE
There was a vote to place TAP, TNPP and TDP into the IEEE system so they could achieve “IEEE Standard status.” This effort is being led by Ted Sumner of Arch Wireless. It will be necessary to do some editing on the original specs to get them into the proper format for submission to the IEEE Working Group. In the meantime, we will post and maintain the original versions of these specs on the AAPC website. The activities related to CALEA compliance by the 5 two-way carriers are essentially complete and the only remaining activity in this area is to work with the FBI (CIS) on the issue of capacity. This is being led by Joe Mullin of Arch Wireless. I will be developing a simple piece for the paging carriers to give to Law Enforcement Agencies describing what is available to them when they present a CALEA court order. The next meeting is tentatively scheduled for January 21, 2003 in a place to be determined. Watch the AAPC website www.pagingcarriers.org for details.

If you have any wireless equipment that you would like to buy or sell, please let me know. Everything that is offered for sale in this newsletter is on the honor system. There is no charge for the listing, but if a sale is made, I ask the seller to send me a 10% commission, much the same as the voluntary payments that are requested on the Internet for shareware.


HISTORY OF THE US PAGING INDUSTRY
This is information that we would all probably like to read. Several people have expressed interest to me in writing an article, but as far as I know, it hasn't happened yet. It is hard to remember which company sold out and which company bought them. Do the names Edwards, Rodgers, and Harris ring a bell? Maybe you would like to contribute some information to a joint effort in documenting the history of our industry? If you would like to put some thoughts together and send to me, I know someone who is actively working on this project, and I would be happy to send on any comments or unfinished papers to them.
