Dear WG II

I was contacted by a data supplier in Alaska that monitors lightening
strikes by measuring changes in electrical potential in the air as
measured
by an antenna. He would like to name it EQO

The E is standard
the Q is for Electrical Potential

They would like to add a code of O for omnidirectional for the
orientation as this sensor has no preferred direction.

Do I have your approval to add the O designation after the Q
Electrical Potential Instrumentation? I think this has no adverse
effects. I will wait to hear back from Bernard before making the change.

Cheers
Tim
