Ah hah. Thanks John. I'm always trying to find a longer period system as I
don't have the time to build one - but would really, really like to. My
system is a vertical 4.5Hz one.

Hi Kareem,

Without strong filtering to enhance the longer periods, this unit would be
unable to see teleseismic surface waves.  The filter/amplifier that is sold
with the AS1 does manage to pull out larger surface waves.

After a large event, check out the records posted here in near-real time:
(Many school stations are not operating during the summer.)

The Sumatra records are posted here:
and records from a 6.7 in the Cayman Islands here:

Often when a long period instrument picks up clear 20-second surface waves
the AS1 will only see waves in the 12- to 15-second range.
