This post we will look at the RF related work of SC 31 in more detail, including the work load and the prospects for standardization from this committee.

I have already explained how the work load and process for a JTC 1 standards committee is broken into stages.

Here are the RF related work items identified for SC 31.  The progress of the various work items will be posted as appropriate:
