Dear Tim and other members of the WG2



I do not see any problem. In order to allow everyone to react, I propose
to have a two week period to collect reactions.

Any objections?



Cheers

Bernard

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

    I would vote in favor of this small change. Jim Lyons responded in
    favor yesterday as well.
