radio observatories are usually in the sticks like the very large array in
new mexico. also, i thought the fcc nprm for bpl had some sort of
exclusionary language for science and government operations such as radio

One wonders what the impact of BPL on OTHER radio astronomy
observatories might be...perhaps there's an ally there, in our
public battle? Right now, it's clear that the executive branch
is pushing public industrial policy in a way which will not serve
consumers OR investors, despite their assertions that it will.
Making the right case to Congress is our only hope here.
(As worrisome as that thought may be.) Finding an ally which is
considered serious...and potentially one in another country, so
we can assert that BPL is contravening a treaty... may be of great
"The 7-80 MHz radio astronomy observatory at the University
of Colorado (where I worked in the 1970s) is no longer operational,
but if it were then BPL would be the death of it!
DOWN WITH BPL!
