Hopefully, the same NTIA that has forced the ridiculous 60-meter band 
restrictions for amateurs, because it wants to protect government HF 
frequencies, and which is not supporting 40-meter band revisions for the 
same reasons, will rear up and forcefully oppose BPL.  I just don't see any 
system that uses power lines not being a major source of interference for 
anyone else who uses HF.
