on the possible chance the numerous

current hum would be much less

out this frequency as a result of all the

||The bandwidth would be very low .... and the interference massive. But a code spreading technique might just work.
||Just use ethernet-over-mains - you could get full bandwidth motion video.
||The surveillance groups of the world can already reverse engineer the interference on your AC electricity to figure out what you have been seeing on your computer. Presumably it's a very small step from there to spotting your encrypted signal. so I doubt you'll be deterring anything but casual surveillance.
