I suspect the Sugar Grove facility is going to deny my request to operate inside the National Radio Quiet Zone even though the Green Bank Observatory will approve it..  I am looking at alternate locations.  Best one I have found is the Blue Knob Ski Resort in PA, FN00RG.  I dont rove, but drive to a good location to operate as a fixed site from one grid.  The resort parking lot lets me reach north to Rochester, east to NY City and south to DC.  Lots of blockage to the west but great to population centers north, east and south.  Good FM location with lots of hams within 250 miles.  

A number of rovers have worked from here over the years.  I would love to know something about your experiences there.  How is the RF noise level?  Any FM contacts?  Staff or parking problems?  I would rent a room at the lodge and bring the XYL who can ski while I contest (win win there).
