AT&T tries broadband over power lines again

more than familiar

any radio signal will induce wired signals when crossing a wire. and any wired signal will induce radio waves over its distance, diminishing as the LRC damps them. this is older than Tesla, it goes back to Edison actually.

and Marconi and Popov and deForest and Fessenden and on and on and on. there is so much prior art that ATT can be blown out of the financial waters on this over the patent alone.

and yes, as a ham facing enough freakin' interference from crud plasma TVs and puck lights under cabinets powered by junk switching wall warts, I will support efforts to slap this nonsense down hard.
