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.
