And, practically speaking, the average US person doesn't care much about whether BBC reaches Lesotho, as long as they've got their AOL.
But, to follow on my earlier comments, raising these issues in places where investors will see them is probably a productive strategy. If the investors see that it's just not a matter of "notching out" the bands for those whining hams or for FEMAs frequencies, but that there's a LOT of activity in those bands, with serious dollars behind it to fight the BPL technology... It's one thing to postulate making a regulatory spectrum tradeoff dumping amateur radio operators (on the "greatest good for the greatest number" approach... BPL is worth more to society than a bunch of geeks playing radio) ... we have no real clout. Entirely another to postulate dumping ARINC, with the multibillion dollar airline industry behind it.
