Plans for this week: June 16 – June 20 
1. More foundational and analysis work on the proposed modulation schemes will be released this week. 
2. Top-level requirements will be listed and presented for review. The purpose of this is to produce a set of project-level requirements that we can bring to the July meeting. 
Carried over from last week:
3. SuperPortable User Interface Design Document work continues. 
4. Antenna work continues and feed research continues. 
5. Requirements analysis (technical) and Position Paper (policy) work on the optional APCO-25 terrestrial interface module continues. I have one volunteer for this effort, and am looking for more.
6. Plans for the July meeting include at least one open meeting. I encourage anyone in or near the San Diego area, who is available on 18-20 July 2008, who has an interest in being involved in the project, to contact me for an invitation. The invitation allows planning for room size and logistics. 
7. Policy development concerning openness, open source, transparency, etc. continues this week. Some of the feedback about the project concerned the definition and explanation of what we mean when we say open source. Based on the discussion last week, a draft policy will be offered for review. This will include the web page, mailing list, and documents management plans and policies.
