The WIA Presents at the IIR conference - BPL in Australia
WIA Director Phil Wait (VK2DKN) delivered a presentation entitled "BPL and Amateur Radio" to the IIR conference "BPL in Australia" held in Sydney on 26 and 27 July. The WIA was invited to present their concerns about the interference potential of BPL to HF radiocommunications.

The conference was attended by management level decision makers from the power and utility industries, the Department of Defence, the regulator - ACMA, ISPs, and others interested in providing access and in-house BPL services, automatic meter reading (AMR), and demand side power management such as dynamic electricity pricing and load shedding.
The WIA presentation was very well received and has increased the awareness of amateur radio and the importance of avoiding interference to radiocommunications services, including amateur radio.
A copy of the PowerPoint presentation can be downloaded from the WIA's website under the BPL section. This is a large file (almost 10Mb) and will require a broadband connection and a copy of Microsoft PowerPoint. Clubs and others are welcome to use this presentation without modification.
