    I’m a ham radio operator and a member of the ARRL. The BPL issues are very real. The interference generated by most of these systems affects almost all of the HF bands below 30Mhz. This doesn’t just affect ham radio, it also affects civil service and law enforcement communications as well. To get an idea of what this kind of interference sounds like and how bad it really is see:

    It should be noted that Motorola and other manufacturers have pulled out of making the equipment for BPL. BPL is really expensive to implement and makes no economic sense. I’m glad to see some headway being made, but we still have a fight ahead of us.
