 Gentlemen... reference MAJ Roos' reply, in short:

1. Re: Freq Approval  - we are approved for 900 Mhz in Bagram - J6 will
double tap the other locations

2. Phone Purchase Option: Yes phones were purchased by 180.  30 secure
and 100 GSM - According to MAJ Roos they will be coming to BAF - not
Kabul. I suggest we purchase more phones as no doubt the subscriber
levels will increase in time. Don't forget we need these phones branded
as we have to start leveraging our good name.

The entire response follows:

Good morning CPT.... As the entire project (one site at Bagram, three
sites at Kabul) is now funded it's best if we approach the following
issues and questions on a network level as we'll have to contend with
these issues at all sites including Kandahar, which I understand will be
funded at some point in the future.

The issues we need to resolve at Bagram and all other sites are as
follows;

1. Frequency Approval for 900 Mhz GSM spectrum. I have the technical
spec for the radio and I'll send it to you in a seperate email. Need to
get the Army's Frequency Manager involved ASAP.  You are approved for
900 Mhz in Bagram - we will double tap the other location

2. Aviation approval for antenna mast location (if applicable)  We will
look into..

3. Site Location - for Bagram it appears a well  suited location is the
TFC Southern Node (sp?). A decision as to the shelter type is required.
North TCF - This is the one that you were at.

4. Numbering Plan - our preference would be to have a seperate nxx with
a block of 1000 numbers  for flexability  i.e. 318-nxx-0000 to 9999. We
also need to be aware of any unique site specific dialing patterns. For
example


We will get you a block of numbers. 

Emergency  911
Information Services 411
Trunk Access codes, for example  99 world wide commercial access, 98
Germany commercial access etc.

Also I need to know if funding includes the purchase of phones, as this
was an option in the proposal. Please let me know if this has been
funded and if so how many phones (regular and secure) for each site.
Yes phones were purchased by 180.  30 secure and 100 GSM - They will be
coming to BAF - not Kabul.

5. Physical and Signalling interface into the Redcom IGX. I understand
T1 is the transport, we need to know the physical (RJ45??) connection
and the signalling protocol (ISDN??)

Points 1, 4 and 5 are crucial and required in order to allow our
engineering team to build a functional database in a timely manner.
Quick responses to these questions will go a long way in shortening the
lead time to cutover.
