Thank you Michael!  I was beginning to think you'd all forgotten your 1990s 
"Clintonese" in 4 short years.

Obviously the money spent in research and testing to "eliminate claims of 
interference" was to learn where HF-hams do not live--anyplace there are 
HOAs and CC&Rs banning antennas!!  Great place to do tests so you can claim 
it doesn't cause interference to HF.

One other thing, please don't give away our best arguments against this 
stuff by sending flames to guys like this.  It'll only cause them to refine 
their poor arguments into betters ones.  I feel it's better to send the 
factual rebuttals directly to the FCC Commissioners, State PUCs, 
Congressional offices, etc.  Maybe they'll begin to see this industries 
gibberish for what it is eventually.

I find this line more telling.
Notice it says nothing about eliminating interference but eliminating

In short, a snow job.
