My understanding is that it's a point to point connection
but that brings up an interesting thought....How can this
RF traverse the transformers in the sub-stations and at
the neighboorhood distribution transformers?
In Japan this system has already been implemented with RFI
complaints from the ham community. The PLC companies were
forced to place 30 db notches in the PLC frequencies to
protect the amateur frequencies.
