Ofcom are a disgrace
It will be interesting to see what CAAs lawyers and technical investigations reveal.
It is interesting to recall what the Ofcom field engineer said to me in the early stages of this saga
which began for me in Feb 2008.
"If it was up to me I would have them banned"
"We (Ofcom) are on a learning curve on Powerline Adaptors"
" I am surprised how far these things are radiating"
No doubt they would flatly deny having made such comments as they are now being obstructionis
in their approach and appear to be trying to defend the indefensible,not wishing to upset BT Vision,
the supplier of the greatest number of these adaptors,preferring to victimise the victims of the interference.
Ofcom are of course controlled by DE/BIS who take the line that it must be good if someone is making money from it and will do their utmost to disregard the downside.
They will have big problems if the latest generation of adaptors sell in large numbers as listeners
to FM and DAB who get a weak or medium strength signal could have their reception ruined.
No doubt Ofcom are busy working behind the scenes to persuade CAA and BBC (whose research
department reported unfavourably on this flawed concept some years ago ) that there is not really
a problem, this will be an attempt to hide their incompetence from scrutiny.
Ofcom have been made to look very foolish at the recent meeting, sadly they are still Judge,Jury,
Court of appeal and reference point for other goverment departments,MPs etc so their statements,
even if a load of twaddle, carry weight.
