"UPLC also commented on amateur radio opposition to the technology, urging the Commission to ignore "armchair amateurs that still use vacuum tube transmitters" and listen to the reputable companies and entrepreneurs who are the real experts on BPL and who have overcome enormous technical obstacles to make BPL a reality in the U.S."
Its not going to effect me, I am in a big city.
Wrong! Its here now, Irving, Houston, and more on the way.
I am a No-Code Tech so I am not effected.
Wrong! Testing showed signals through 147 Mhz due to Harmonics and mixing! 6 meters is heavily effected!
I’ll fire up my big amp and show them!
Wrong! Think about it.
Results from test In Irving using Yaesu FT-100, Full DSP, 2.4 Khz Filter ATAS-100 Antenna, 150 feet from BPL Unit.

How about ¼ mile away? 17 meters toast!
Want more? I got it if you want to hear it but I hope you get the point. From nice CW to total noise!
That was with a ATAS-100! It was reported to be much worse with a tri-band beam!
