The DRM folks (Digital Radio Mondiale) organized a fine workshop at the 
spring international meeting of the AES (Audio Engineering Society) this 
spring. I attended the workshop and asked the broadcasters present how 
their system would stand up to the BPL systems that are being tried in North 
America. The engineer's face turned quite serious, and his response was 
that BPL essentially wipes out all international broadcasting, including DRM. 
They take BPL as a major threat. 

It's interesting, though, how little attention these folks seem to pay to North 
America. They were unaware of Ten Tec, and of their DRM-capable 
receivers. And even though I specifically told them about Ten-Tec's 
receivers in May, no mention of Ten-Tec was made in the story above.
