    LOL :D
    That is toooo funny, let`s start with the one that makes me chuckle the most:


    This will cause Increased complaints to the FCC about High Powered CB radio stations smashing the signal on the BPL network, along with TV, Phone and radio.....
    Lets face it whoever wrote this sadly underestimates the "common Joe" and his ability to "Get Over" the interference with a bigger box.
    Got 6 s units of interference?
    Lets fire up my daveforce driving my sweeptubearfic 750, and we can talk just like neighbor`s! :D
    (wonder how much stray RF that new BPL modem can take?)
    As for 10 and 12 meters, 10 is a big chunk of ham real estate, that will not go away easly.
    Besides, they run 100 watt exciters and Alpha amps (hehehe), and the rule says
    "the minium amount of power to maintain reliable comunictaions"
    Hey, If I need to run legal limit to get through the noise level........
    I really think BPL will fail on its own, but what do I know? :D

    The noise affects your ability to hear. It will not matter how much you crank up the juice, unless your just considering local traffic.

    Even then, the guys around here run 1/2 KW boxes, and they dont get up much past 9. It could probably still work, but it would kill DX. Your not going to hear anything...until you fry the BPL modem, of course.

    It was a state senator speaking, supposedly at an ARRL conference.

    Well than if 10,11,12 meters are trashed what will C.W. have to moan and groan about??
    Mabe the fact that his beloved FCC let it happen in the first place? Naw that would make too much sense?

    When the skip is rolling, most of the folks on the other end hit me with alot more than 6 on the richter scale. If BPL stops me and the locals about 30 miles away from talking, we'll just have to put alot more fire in the wire. :LOL:
    I hear some folks will be doing what ever it takes to put the BPL lines outta' business... :twisted:

    Re: f

    And what does more "fire in the wire" do if you can't HEAR the other fellow? At 30 miles, and a BPL node on the pole outside your house, you AIN'T gonna do nuttin'!


    Now, no one has talked about the positives in this and the things that are coming TO and BEYOND BPL. There is a huge theory that BPL will die as fast as it came on. WHY? Ever think about all those cell towers in your neighborhood? Don't think for a minute those cell guys aren't working to get a slice of the information pie! :) It already exists in some areas. BPL is a "fad". Some electric companies are now bailing OUT of BPL once they tried it and found that competition will eat BPL's lunch. There's gonna be so many communications options out there, it ain't funny! And BPL is obsolete before it even started. It's why Japan and other countries didn't even let it get off the ground! For the BPL systems that remain, technology exists to squelch the noise generated by BPL.
    While, yes, there will be BPL, there is also BGL, too. (Broadband over gas lines), WiFi, digi-cell that use cell towers,
    and computers in the palm of your hand (Your cell phone!).

    BPL will cause trouble in the short term, then DIE like the good, obedient dog it is! :D

    CW, I thought you died...or got banned?

    In the inner city, bpl has no purpose. In the country, it will run astray like most dogs...have fun.

    I quit!

    bpl should not have been or will be allowed . it will be decremental not only for 10/12 meter and CB but will also effect the police and emergency frequencies . i am a ham radio operator and have been on CB since 1976 . i will be the first person to say the fcc allocated wattage of 4 watts for CB is way inadequate , at a minimum CB base operation should be set at 100 watts and CB mobile operation at 250 watts . if and when the bpl comes into an area an a CB AND a ham radio operator has to start using 5000 watts to talk 20 miles and wipe out every tv & telephone in the county and when the fcc starts raising hell about it , it will be time to send the fcc a letter and say '' well it is your own fault , you are the one who allowed bpl'' .
