      Or....
      Just do your ham (and SWL) friends
      around the globe a favor. Set up a
      "Beacon" station of a few watts or more.
       
      That should help....
      with everything, for many miles around.

      Ahhhh... BPL! Just say no! And file interference reports and more
      interference reports and more interference reports... and mebbe even
      drop a few cheap buzzers around the base of utility poles. Lean up
      against them for hours calling "Breaker 19". Use them as convenient
      hiding spots for foxhunt transmitters. Conduct a RACES exercise in
      near proximity then file reports with CD authorities about all the
      unwarranted and capricious interference.

      BPL has to coexist with licensed services on a non-interfering basis
      which it is not capable of doing therefore BPL has to go and so it
      will. It's a bottom-line losing proposition for the utility companies.
