Thomas and Geoff,

Although we go up to 30Hz, the background noise in the area usually 
obliterates any small higher-frequency phases.

I don't think we were seeing anything but surface waves from the Honshu 
quake.  But......  with a10 second LoPass filter your recent Pacific 5.2 at 
108 degrees from LA did show a clearly visible Pdiff and then about 18 
minutes of various body phases which I don't have the experience to 
identify, followed by some big surface waves.

What does your noise level look like, Thomas?
