Say hi to Peter. He is another Midland user.
Seems that the stupidity that is BPL is making a show near him.

We have a similar stupidity here called Broad Band over Power Lines.
My club AMRAD has done a lot of work trying to get this turkey of an idea killed.
Im going to CC this to AMRAD's Taco's list.
Let see what happens.
Keep it safe

join as you can help fight!
The time is now, don't leave it until its all too late, join today
and be part of a group that wants to preserve the short wave spectrum.
