We are planning on Holding the RFOM kickoff Telecon Friday Oct 17,
1997 from 12noon to 1pm Eastern time.  The contact info is in the

During the telecon, I would like to go over the following
12:00-12:10: Intro, Introductions and identification of Community ties
12:10-12:20: Background, TOR status, TOR Review
12:20-12:40: Discuss and determine required PRODUCTS (including form),
             RESOURCES, and volunteer interest
12:40-12:55: Determine basic study schedule and tentative activities/
12:55-13:00  Wrap up.

I would like to stay on time here to minimize cost, and keep everyone on

schedule.  If we encounter a tough or debatable issue, let's decide to
assign it to a team to follow up on it.

We could do this in a more laid-back way and just chat, but I would like
get the study group off on the right foot.  We can do our technical
on the reflector.

Following this letter is included a cut at the required products of this

study derived from the Terms of Reference.
a) Recommended unambiguous definition and terminology.
b) Recommended description of the RFOM characteristics to support
c) Assessment community interest in, and need for Reference FOM
