Yes, they've threathened to arrest me for taking pictures in public places (and often not even of them), many times. Never actually done it though (of course).
Nothing winds a copper up more than knowing his job better than him.
Perfectly valid. You're not in a public place.
More Powerline Networking crap to destroy the airwaves illegally.
Users of Powerline Networking equipment in the UK (yes, that's USERS, not just sellers!) are liable to a maximum fine of £5000 - they don't tell you that in the press release, do they?

Thanks for at least thinking of us Amateur Radio operators - many supporters of these abominations couldn't give a toss.
My own house is much like yours - an ex council four in a block flat built in the 40s. No cavity walls or anything like that - although the exterior is lathe and plaster on the inside.
I've cabled the three rooms of the house that have internet access, and there is wireless without any problems.
It wasn't a doddle, but it certainly didn't take months.
I've yet to see an airport that can DF a VHF airband transmission with their standard equipment, and the police certainly can't do it either.
There is no substitute for a good aerial system - an amplifier certainly won't cut it in place of a properly fitted aerial - for TV or anything else.
