3) deliberate interference...and that's what was proposed here,
        is illegal.  And beneath us.

Please do not misrepresent my post. LEGAL operation of Amateur Radio gear is NEVER "deliberate interference".

Read the regs -- their devices are REQUIRED to protect against
LEGAL transmissions, our devices are not required to be shut
down because their devices have been *knowingly* manufactured
with defective features.

IF we choose to operate LEGALLY in order to make the point
that their marketing spinmeisters are lying-for-profit DOES
NOT make US the bad guys.

In the marketplace VHS won over BETA -- NOT because VHS was
the superior technology.  Don't make the false assumption
that merely because BPL is inferior technology that it will
not be forced into the marketplace -- it would not be the first
time, nor the last, that inferior devices beat-out superior

BTW: My proposal was made with tongue-firmly-planted-in-cheek.

Sheesh! ;-(

Thanks! & 73, doc kd4e
