The different channels all come from the same sensor. The only difference
is the sample rate and low-pass filter point. The BH* channels are normally
sampled at 20 or 40 SPS and the LH* channels at 1 SPS. There is also a VH*
channel with a sample rate of .1 SPS. On my Broadband request system I
receive this channel but throw away the data since is not very useful for
earthquake monitoring.
