5. Another gift to the corporations
The FCC is totally neglecting its responsibility to protect the interests of all users of the radio spectrum.

BPL creates a horrendous noise situation that will greatly reduce the usefulness of radio as a communication medium.

It is obvious that the FCC doesn't care one wit about this and is proceeding to throw a large bone to the utilities. much has this group "donated" to the politicians who work for us?
