What is BPL? § BPL: Broadband over Power Lines – Designed to turn power What is BPL? § BPL: Broadband over Power Lines – Designed to turn power grid into high-speed network and internet access. § Power Companies also use BPL for “Smart Grid” § Uses power lines to transmit data using RF from 2 to 80 MHz § Throughput speeds per line 200 Mb/ 3 Mb per user § Uses 802. 11 b/g or direct connection to get signal from pole to user.

The Technology of BPL § Three Parts of BPL – Internet connection to Injector The Technology of BPL § Three Parts of BPL – Internet connection to Injector 802. 11 b/ethernet – Injector “injects” data onto line – Repeater , every 1200 feet boosts signal – Connection box. 802. 11 b/g, or Ethernet, Home. Plug

Our Concerns § § § Power lines are long unshielded wires. What is your Our Concerns § § § Power lines are long unshielded wires. What is your antenna made of? Wire… What happens when you inject a RF signal on a wire? It becomes an antenna!! Look around you and see how many powerlines there are. Remember they are using 2 -80 Mhz from 75 M thru 6 M

The System Specs § High Voltage Lines – 31 to 48 Mhz § Ability The System Specs § High Voltage Lines – 31 to 48 Mhz § Ability to notch frequencies or ranges of frequencies § Home Plug for house/business side § 4 to 30 Mhz § 30 Db notch on all ham bands but 60 meters § Quite operations – Transmits only when needed § New technology to fix 60/add movable notches

Cincinnati Install § § § § 5, 000 Homes passed working on 50, 000 Cincinnati Install § § § § 5, 000 Homes passed working on 50, 000 Hams have installs in their homes for testing. No interference complaints filed Test shows minimal interference to amateur radio bands Interference confined to within 200 feet of home. Slight increase in background noise Squawks and short burst of noise heard Shortwave bands more heavily affected.

What to expect? ? ? Theoretically § Increase in background noise HF ham bands What to expect? ? ? Theoretically § Increase in background noise HF ham bands § 60 Meters S 9 + when active possible § Other HF Bands - Increased background noise and some momentary noises § Shortwave bands S 9 + when active § 31 to 48 Mhz S 9 + § No interference to system from Hams
