Just did some reading on the ARRL website and apparently the concern is over deployment of Broadband over Power Line BPL not BTL as I thought I heard.

Right, broadband over powerlines. Broadband internet service via the electrical powerlines running everywhere. These are unshielded wires, and will broadcast the signal wherever they are. Every block, every house. In the country, along every road and highwway, long antennas broadcasting interference. Japan has had terrible trouble with interference. Kiss ham, CB, AM broadcasting and shortwave reception goodbye!

The power companies and internet service companies stand to rake in huge profits from this so there is no way the FCC will lift a finger to help us. This could be the end of HF ham radio.

The sky really is falling.

Ok. So I got a radio. Vertex (Yaesu) vx-150. It's a 2 meter. It'll be good for starting out.

J-truck thing
this may be well past your time for looking for equip but I searched google for "amateur radio in denver, co" and came up with a lot of places, clubs etc, someone at one of these site should be able to steer you to where you need to go. some hamfests of sorts are coming soon, check them out

lots of ham clubs in denver area also on air swap meets or used to be. when I started all I had was a scanner, one of the hams in my area had something for sale that he listed his Telephone number with so I called him and got in to th hobbie that way. There used to be a group that got on I beleive the 145.145 repeater at night that called them selves the dirty dozen they stayed on most of the night with defferent people checking in all the time. What was really cool about the repeaters was you could be on the eastern border of colorado and get in with 5/8ths of a watt .or find the severy weather net those crazys chase tornados
