Hi Geoffry,

To see the P arrival I normally just turn up the WinQuake Y scale.  Since 
the basic sensitivity is a better than 10nm/count, you can expand it quite 
a lot.


You can pretty well see where the Pn starts around 17:57:00 which is made 
clearer with a 0.2sec low-pass filter.  Looking at the arrival time tables, 
it would seem that you have the 5.8 with a predicted Pn arrival at 17:57:00 
getting its later phases mixed with the 6.9, which has a predicted Pn 
arrival at 18:01:33.  They are going to be pretty hard to untangle.
