    BPL -Bad news for Hams and other radio listeners

    According to Art Bell and the head of the Amateur Radio
    Relay League BPL will be bad for all Hams, small city
    Police forces and any group trying to help out with radio
    communications after a disaster or other event as the HUM
    from all the power lines will wipe out all of the radio
    messages. We should all write our Congressmen and women
    and Senators and tell them to stop this BPL project or
    find a way for the FCC to allow both the Internet and
    short wave radio to exist.
