I'm not sure about procedure here, should/could there be a counter  
proposal? At the very least a document would need to be put together  
discussing why the existing proposal is not necessarily the best  
one.    We (EI) will have representatives at the meeting (I'll ring  
them tomorrow and ask their opinion), but I'm not sure how the IARU  
Region 1 political system works.

Colleagues of mine recently did a road trip from Belarus back to  
Ireland, WIDEn-n worked pretty much all the way, so I don't know how  
the paper can claim TRACEn-n is favoured (amongst other items).
