When a word of degree is used in a claim, it is incumbent upon Appellants to provide, in the specification, some standard for measuring that degree. Seattle Box Co., Inc. v. Industrial Crating & Packaging, Inc., 731 F.2d 818, 826 (Fed. Cir. 1984). Here, Appellants fail to provide a standard for measuring the range of communication.

Therefore, we find that the broadest reasonable interpretations of the claimed "venue" and "limited range of communication" is any location that is associated with an event, and any range that covers that particular venue, respectively.
