Interesting info on Powerline transmissions by Utility companies,I was CE at Ole Miss college station WCBH in 60's using carrier currrent and we ran pair of 814's into coax which fed individual coupling units for each building feeding the 220 vac entrance line .The buildings leaked radiated signal which was adequate to receive on car radios all over campus.FCC engineers seemed to like our operation as never wrote us a ticket.We were on the air during the somewhat famous integration riots in which we had a sniper firing from a hide on our roof,and a French newsman asassinated just outside our doorsteps.
I have often wondered if it would be feasible to utilize long HV electricic transmission lines as radiating horizontal "long wire" antennas for medium or even high power commercial AM band broadcasting.Must be experimental data on this somewhere. 73, C.W
