Nice to hear Ed Hare and what he was allowed to
explain about interference issues.
It was a damn small sound bite, and editorially seemed
to be an afterthought to a very promotional thrust in
the NPR story. Somebody probably told the reporter
"Hey don't you need some balance in this?" and there
you have it. 
I remain convinced the group in Newington shot itself
in the foot on the BPL issue by portraying it as a
problem for ham radio. It allowed all manner of
critics to size it up as troubling only to an
eccentric group of guys playing radio. Too late now,
but the stronger approach would have taken Ed Hare's
good work documenting the interference problem and
then mounted a campaign to show how a variety of HF
users shall be affected by the problem. The NPR story
is the latest example of how the problem is marginalized.
