4. At what was the National Radio Astronomy Observatory at Green Bank, WV,

there is a National Radio Quiet Zone of about 13,000 square miles, with strict limitations on all sorts of broadcast transmissions. As they say in Wikipedia:

The most severe restrictions imposed on the general public are only in place within the 20-mile (32 km) radius of the Green Bank Observatory. The Observatory actively polices the area for devices emitting noticeably high amounts of electromagnetic radiation such as microwave ovens, Wi-Fi routers and faulty electrical equipment and request citizens discontinue their usage. They possess no legal powers of enforcement (although the FCC can still impose a fine of $50 on violators), but will work with residents to find solutions.

If you go to visit the Observatory, you can't drive your gasoline-powered vehicle past the parking lot at the front gate -- too much interference from the spark plugs.

We already know about this stuff! Why wouldn't NASA think about it for the moon? Oh. Duh. Trump appointed the current head of NASA.
