John lots of things are transmitted along power cables, not sure why it would worry the BBC though

Not saying it would worry the Beeb Brian, I thought they could broadcast all the local radio stations on the national grid from one place, and they would not need loco broadcasting stations all over the country. . Which I consider to be a waste of my License money. Just my opinion you understand.

Not sure you can have local radio from one place. Imagine the local news, it would run for hours if they had to cover every place

To transmit any kind of signal though the house ring main you need a device at each end ie a sender (transmitter) and a receiver. Of course they can both act as receiver and transmitter as in the case of a LAN connection (which in my experience are less than useless!). So what the point of this insect repeller is I have no idea - maybe to inform someone in the lounge that there is a mosquito in the kitchen by sounding a bleep perhaps?

I think he might be saying that the sound is transmitted all along the cable. Anyway it doesn’t matter does it, the OP just asked if what ever system he has would affect DCC and FB said very unlikely. Job done.

Leave local radio to commercial stations then. Dont need BBC local radio. Any way this is going off topic John

No need to be flippant TDD!
I said its very unlikely to cause problems as most if not all DCC system will use a DC as the input from the mains.

IMO it will not cause any issues. Radio or TV - DAB and FM etc transmissions. WiFi, Bluetooth and radar if your close enough dont cause problems and they are all picked up by mains cabling.

Not trying to be flippant FB. At least five other people on here are as "intrigued" as me as to how, what and why this thing does what we were told it does by the OP. I at least wanted to know more but I'm told the "jobs done" (in other words "shut up") because of your earlier reply. FWIW I totally agree with you that it's extremely unlikely to cause a problem to DCC signals, but then again, what do I know.
