You  sure did, and with the S-G's too boot!  Very interesting
machine to use.  Only had one S-G operating here, but it also
did well for that big quake (ML5).  The other S-G I'd replaced
with an experimental unit....but that hung up prior to the quake
of course....(alot of clenched teeth there....ha).

Tony's in Hawaii recordings looks like works of art overall,
real good, and it covers the span of time for most of the time.

I'd expect just about everyone with long period capability will
have events posted on this big one.

Haven't heard of any tidal wave warning, or if it did any such.
As remote an area as it is, it may take days to hear news from
the area, in regard to damage and deaths resulting from it.

Take care,
