Question: While visiting Green Bank this weekend we noticed two towers in the parking lot behind the Jansky Lab. Can you tell us more about these towers? – Daniel
Answer: You were probably seeing the instrument test towers used by the NRAO staff to test various receiver systems. They use these towers to run tests on some receiver systems before using them for astronomical measurements.
