Re: Not going there Now imagine if that static was constant, and eminating from multiple directions....your Microwave is only on for short periods....

said by wilburyan:I agree with you about almost everything emitting interference. But you mention sporadic interference; when our friends to the north begin trials, the results will, hopefully, be widely publicized. Hopefully, we hams will be proven wrong about the deleterious effect of BPL on a world-wide scale, and that interference will be slight to non-existant, but I have my doubts... There are trials in Manassas which are ongoing and the subject of some hot debate.
"Hydro-Québec to launch trials"
And Trials is what they are. If any problems come up and the problems outweigh the benefits then it should be and most likely will be canned. If the problem is only a couple HAM ops are getting some static then they will have to suck it up. I mean almost everything throws off some kinda interference. When I use my cordless phone and the microwave is running, behold, my phone gets static... it happens, and I deal with it.
If they use 5 GHz BPL, then there will be none of that, and local interference(if any)is much more easily mitigated.
Don't get me wrong, though... I hope that broadband can be brought to everyone in the world who wants it.
I once accidentally spilled spot remover on my dog and he disappeared. Take a look at these sites: »www.prepaidlegal.com/info/kfolsom (Pre-Paid Legal Memberships)»www.prepaidlegal.com/go/kfolsom (Business Opportunity)»www.folsomtech.com
