Try this quick quiz:
What is the EIRP of a 7MHz transmitter that results in a S9 signal at a receiver located 1km from the transmitter, is it closest to:
Answer: e, it is as little as just 3 microWatts EIRP.
Remember that it takes less than a nanoWatt EIRP (ie 10E-9 Watts, a thousandth of a millionth of a Watt) of leakage of radiofrequency energy at 7MHz from BPL enabled power lines 10 metres from a dipole to cause S9 level interference.
Are you ready for BPL enablement of your home and neighbourhood?
