sorry about the location confusion. I used to live in Hawaii and I
haven't changed all the pages of my web yet. I hesitate to put precise
co-ordinates for no better reason than paranoia and the mad idea that a
thief would know where to locate my equipment! Total paranoia...
Whenever I submit a psn file, it does have the co-ords.
I'm at 55.949N, 2.72W. I have a stand alone rs232 12 bit A/D sampling
each channel at 50 sps. Each analogue signal passes through a Krohn-Hite
3322 band pass filter / amplifier. The software is home made C code
using the pgplot library for the graphs running on a linux system which
includes the web server. I should of course put all this on the web
site. The site will appear slow as my broadband connection is via a
Jón's house sitting on a rock sounds good but the sensor will presumably
pick up noise from activity in the house. Whilst I have mine outside,
my concrete pad is sitting on clay. The deepest I have ventured down,
when the house was being extended, is 5m and there was no sign of rock.
I'm located in the middle of a farm and the nearest road is half a mile
away, so I only get road noise when the farmer passes by, as can be seen
on the geophone trace!
The coldest my geophone has experienced must be around -6 Centigrade.
I'm sure it will get much colder in Iceland but I'm not sure what type
of damage that would cause. The electronics and computer are of course
inside! I have about 15 m of "satellite" co-ax cable connecting it to
the amplifier via a lightning arrestor.
