RFI Concerns

The Green Bank site of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, the location of the workshop, is a unique resource for radio astronomy and has many operating telescopes. It is located in the National Radio Quiet Zone (NRQZ), which provides protection from permanent, fixed, and licensed transmitter services. Its location, surrounded by national forest and mountainous terrain, also serves to protect observations. Therefore, there are some important points to keep in mind during your travel to and stay in Green Bank.

  • Please be aware that there is no cell phone reception within Green Bank nor within a 1 hour drive of Green Bank.
  • We offer only wired Internet access on site and where you'll be lodged. Please bring your own Cat5 cable. WiFi is not permitted on site. We also ask that you turn off the WiFi capability of any wireless devices while on site.
  • Digital cameras are not permitted near the telescopes.
