  NOTE:
  In an effort to stop email addy harvesting for spamming,  I have removed the active email addy.
  Instead there is just a text version along with extra text in the addy that needs to be removed 
  after the addy is copied and pasted into your email prog.  
  remove the word ...   antispam  ... from  the addy before sending.

GND TYPE:		 
COMMENTS:		My primary interest is instrument development . The  FMES (Fluid Mass Electrolytic Seismometer ) is a very respectable 
and extremely simple horizontal  instrument with  no mechanical moving  parts. It is background limited even in very quiet locations such as 
rural Panama where it is currently operating side by side with a Trillium 40.  A Force Balance Vertical is in the works based on a very simple 
design. Electronics are being tested  in the CM-3.  Expect operational tests within the month.  More on this activity later.  I will be bringing a 
second 8 channel system on line soon. It will include a 3 axis 1 Hz geophone and various broadband sensors ,experimental and  professional, 
possibly including a Trillium 40. Exact configuration of both systems when second A/D is brought on line is still undecided.
