Thanks to Dave, NM0S, for passing the link along.

Our UK friends can enter a contest:

"The EMCIA have announced a contest to identify the interference range
of Power Line Telecommunications - otherwise known as PLC or BPL."

"Entrants are to demonstrate the detection of interference emission
from a single installation comprising 2 to 4 eligible PLAs at the
greatest possible distance. There will be two awards;
* LDX; The ?long-distance? prize. In choosing the winner of this the
  judges will also take account of the Contest
  Objectives and technical excellence.
* MTY; The ?most typical? prize. This will be awarded to the entrant
  whose detection distance is closest to the
  arithmetic average of the detection distances of all accepted

PLAs: Power Line Adaptors

Perhaps "The W4CIA" can promote a similar contest for U.S. based
