Lodging

SOS reserved a block of 50 rooms for our collective use during the 1999 Field Study at the:

Homestead Village
727 McGavock Pike
Nashville, TN 37214
(615) 316-9020

Depending on the length of stay, the room rates range from $35 to $45 per night. Federal Tax waivers are accepted and should be used. Each individual is responsible for securing their own room reservations. When making your reservation you should speak with Mindy Hobbs and preface your request with the fact that you are a member of the "SOS/TVA Field Study" and that you would like one of the 50 rooms reserved for that purpose. The rooms will be distributed on a first come basis so we urge each of you to make your reservations as soon as practical. Remember that Nashville Fan Fair 1999 overlaps with the timing of the study and rooms in Nashville will be at a premium.

There are other accommodations in the Nashville area participants may find more appealing. Be sure to ask for government rates and tax credits for stays over 30 days. Some Aeronomy Lab participants found a great hotel alternative on Music Row, the Spence Manor, for something out of the ordinary with true Nashville flavor!

Office Space Network

The Gassaway building offices will have a 100MHz TCP/IP Ethernet network connected to the Internet through a dedicated T-1 (1.544 Mbps) contracted with MCI WorldCOM for the duration of the study. A TCP/IP tunnel to Boulder will be in place to enable the use of NOAA Aeronomy Lab resources, and control of IP numbers and the firewall (this firewall will not restrict participant work). For each network device identified, a twisted pair cable with a RJ-45 connector is supplied. Users must supply all other hardware required to connect and operate their network devices.

Contact Cathy Burgdorf with network related questions on site during the study.

Printers

There are 4 network printers (2 color and 2 B&W) in the Gassaway building. An HP LaserJet 4M+ and an Epson Color 900N are located in the center of the open area. An HP LaserJet 4000N and another Epson Color 900N are located in the office area. Extra paper and toner cartridges are in proximity.
