I want to apologize to you and the list for sending a message for Chris
Chapman to the whole list (I just hit reply without seeing who it was
replying to). I have been interested in Earth tides and have wanted to make
an instrument to measure them. C. L. Strong originally had an article on
making a tiltmeter based on two mercury-filled cups connected by a tube and
measuring the level by a capacitance gauge, "A sensitive mercury tiltmeter
that serves as a seismometer" Scientific American, November 1973, pp.
124-129. The electronics were updated by an article in Nuts & Volts by Ron
Newton, "Measure Earth Tides with a Tiltometer" I ordered a board from Ron,
but was unable to make it work. I have just completed a circuit suggested
by Chris based on the Linear Technology LTC 1043 chip and the email to
Chris was to let him know how it was working.
