as i understand the homeplug stuff it adapts the channels it uses to avoid
interference to itself.  in doing so it would avoid frequencies being used
locally by other services.... being used to transmit that is.  so if you
are listening on a frequency it can't avoid interfering with you unless
you are listening to something else that is strong enough to interfer with
the homeplug communications.
