As Advocate of the Proposal, I approve.

I like the proposal and the concept of having matching plaques at both ends. I have some suggestions for the citation:

The first transpacific undersea telephone cable linking Japan, Hawaii and the US Mainland was completed in 1964. It was a joint project among American Telephone and Telegraph, Hawaiian Telephone Company, and Kokusai Denshin Denwa. Service over the new cable was inaugurated on 19 June 1964 by President Lyndon B Johnson and Prime Minister Hayato Ikeda, as they exchanged a congratulatory telephone call on the completion of this communication bridge between Asia and America.

Dear Mr. Feisel, Thank you, and as the Proposer, I agree to your advice. However, your sentence has 73 words. Though I am not sure how strict the 70 words limit, I amend as below:

The first transpacific undersea telephone cable linking Japan, Hawaii and the US Mainland was completed in 1964. It was a joint project among American Telephone and Telegraph, Hawaiian Telephone Company, and Kokusai Denshin Denwa. Service over this cable was inaugurated on 19 June 1964 by President Lyndon B Johnson and Prime Minister Hayato Ikeda, by exchanging a congratulatory telephone call on this communication bridge between Asia and America.

Dear Mr. Kuwazaru,

I like your version very much.

I fully concur with Lyle. This is worthy of being an IEEE Milestone.

It appears some of the location and sponsor information is missing?

Dear Johnston-san, "File: TPC-1 IEEE OwnerLetters(1).pdf" contains the information of both KDDI and Hawaiian Telcom as the land owners. "File: TPC-1 IEEE SectionChairLetters.pdf" contains the information of both IEEE Tokyo Section and Hawaii Section. I will try to split these letters on GHN website. Kuwazuru (Proposer)

This is Kuwazuru (Proposer). I have updated the Proposal; (1) Citation [based on the Dicussions], (2) Historical significance, Obstacles, Features [polishing English], (3) one additional Supporting document. PDFs of owner letter and section chair letter include both Japan and Hawaii.

I fully support this milestone and I really like the idea of putting one at each end of the cable. The claims are valid based on my knowledge of this subject and the supporting citations. --Dave Bart
