Belkin's Nightmare Powerline Adapter

Roger G4OWG spotted this video of the new plug in Gigabit network adapter from Belkin. The video was made by Nige, G7CNF. It shows the massive interference to VHF radio in the range of 50 to 370mHz wiping out broadcast radio on both analogue and DAB, the amateur bands but also more seriously airbands and emergency services. Any respect that Belkin had as the producer of quality computer networking products must now be in tatters. I would never buy any powerline adapter but after seeing this I will no longer buy anything else from Belkin and maybe I should have a closer look at their products I am already using.
