Hi Bob,

I'm not sure of the working of Larry's program, but you can see the expected
arrival times at your station for any earthquake by using this page:

There is also a travel time graph - an old one that is a bit hard to read - but
your can see how P becomes P diffracted and then dies out.  PKP is a few
minutes later.
