Green Bank Radio Telescope Operates in the KKK-Band? - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Greetings:

An RF Cafe visitor recently sent me a photo of the 100-meter radio astronomy telescope at Green Bank, West Virginia. The first thing I noticed in the pic was the dedication plaque to former Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-WV); in fact, it is called the "Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope."

What I want to know is does the Robert C. Byrd telescope operate in the KKK-Band? :smt043 They don't use an e-mail address, or I would write to ask.

KKK-band! That's a riot! =D> :thumleft:

I was always wondering why Byrd was called the Conscience of the Senate when everyone knew of his background as a KKK kleagle. Bill Clinton even excused it at the old coot's funeral by saying it was necessary to get elected in West Virginia. Then again, Bill figured womanizing was necessary to get elected in Arkansas! :smt025
