eldavojohn (898314) writes "Ars has a nice little post on the curious events surrounding the death of broadband over power lines (BPL). Trials and advances have been discussed on Slashdot many times but the Federal Communications Commission's go ahead has now been called into question by the American Radio Relay League who used a FOIA request to obtain non-redacted documents. The ARRL is concerned with receiver interference in their HAM radio operations and would like to see BPL stopped. These documents have interesting data points and other analysis that may cast doubt on BPL. After a federal court took a look at the FCC's study, a DC Court of Appeals judge noted, 'there is little doubt that the Commission deliberately attempted to exclude from the record evidence adverse to its position.'"
