A group of us met last night with Mike Martin K3RFI, who is an
interference investigator by profession (he was in town for
consultations with the Holland Board of Public Works, which ran
fiber-optic cable through the whole business district years ago and has
not the slightest interest in doing BPL) and often helps other hams with
He said that he has driven through areas where BPL is in use, but with
his sophisticated and expensive equipment has never detected anything
other than the normal power-line noise to be found anywhere.
On 10/22/04 01:37 pm EDWARDS, EDDIE J put fingers to keyboard and
launched the following message into cyberspace:
> Once BPL is installed in enough cities you will have to have an amp if
> you want to be heard above the new noise floor; otherwise no one will
> hear you calling even if you don't have BPL in your area.
