Green Bank

Have you ever wonder, what if there's a place without WIFI, Radio, Internet, TV.  without any radio signal emission, not even a microwave?.  Well, this zone, exist, and its call the quiet zone, protected by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO).

This zone its affordable for those who are sensitive to the radio signals, it was create to protect a radio telescope Green Bank, an expensive big parabola for our eyes.

West Virginia is the house of the Green Bank,  includes all land with latitudes between 37° 30′ 0.4″ N and 39° 15′ 0.4″ N, and longitudes between 78° 29′ 59.0″ W and 80° 29′ 59.2″ W according with Wiki.

I would die with 2 days living next to this telescope, but there's a lot of people that would like to be next to it to enjoy the quietness of the radio silence.
