A load management terminal for each of remote electric utility customer locations included in a power line communication system is addressable by alternate codes. A combined unique, selected block and universal block address recognition circuit is alternately responsive to received data addressed to a single terminal or either of two groups of terminals also including the single terminal. An internal address generator produces a plurality of different binary coded bit streams for use as authenticating reference addresses at address comparators in the recognition circuit. Different selected block address circuit configurations are available by connecting a predetermined one of the bit streams to an associated selected block address comparator.
