"BPL is a Pandora's Box of Unprecedented Proportions," ARRL Tells FCC

"NEWINGTON, CT, Jul 8, 2003--Citing the potential for interference to and from Amateur Radio, the ARRL has called on the FCC to "take no steps" to permit Broadband over Power Line (BPL)--a form of power line carrier (PLC) technology. The League has filed a 120-page response--including studies--in response to the FCC's BPL Notice of Inquiry (NOI ) in ET Docket 03-104, published May 23. The NOI asking how the FCC should regulate the delivery of broadband services to homes and businesses using electrical wiring to conduct high-speed digital signals attracted some 1900 comments--many from the amateur community--by the July 7 comment deadline."

Article by Rick Lindquist.

Rick's colleague Ed Hare has also passed along the following:
"Those that want to search the FCC Broadband Over Power Lines NOI comments can do so at the FCC Search Engine:"

"Type in 03-104 in the search engine."

"A list of the hyperlinks to company and organizational filings and individual filing of more than 3 pages has been put up at:"

Thanks, Ed!
