Greenbank Trip Photos

On Sept 29-30 the Steel City ARC sponsored a trip down to the Greenbank Telescope in West Virginia.  We had 15 members and friends drive down their to learn about the ultimate DX they were working on.  Not only did we learn a lot the scenery was just prefect down in between the mountains.  On Saturday the group split in two with most taking a ride on the CASS railroad while the other drove up to the top of Spruce Knob at 4900 ft elevation to do some SOTA contacts.

Special Thanks goes out to Rich Bradley W4DZC and the the staff – Angela, Mark, and Joyce at the telescope for all the help at planning this trip.  Rich ended up giving us an very special behind the scene tour and a lot of detail on the work being done there.

Special thanks for those that are sharing their photos:
