Interesting concept. I thought there were too many technical problems with it due to noise. I also thought that there were some groups violently opposed to it. The ham radio operators felt it screwed up their frequencies. But is looks like it is moving ahead. I know it is working in Germany and Scotland.

Hopefully someone else has information on this that they can share.

The noise issues seem to be sorted out for most things. I'd have concern about noise induced on audio recording equipment (Bearcat plays bass or guitar too - so he might be concerned about that too). But a power conditioner should sort that out.

Everything old is new again. My grandmother has a rotary dial phone laying around somewhere with no standard phone line plug or wire. It plugs into a wall outlet like a toaster.



Cajun's safety tip: Don't answer the toaster when the phone rings. Skin graft is painful.
