100 ppm is 0.0001. 0.0001*1000 Hz =3D 0.1 Hz
The other issue with some sound cards has to do with the sample rate
not being uniform due to hardware limitations (poor design). That=20
would show up as noise on the output in this case. There are DSP-type=20
radio receivers out there that use sound cards for digitization, but=20
they choose their sound cards carefully.
Despite all that, I'll bet you can demodulate something that looks
very like a seismic signal with any old sound card and some=20
