Last week the refurbished seismometers that will be heading to Mexico (hopefully along with me!) finally arrived from Guralp in the UK. They're a bit different than what we installed at orientation - there is no other 'box' that they connect to - everything is controlled from a laptop via Guralp's interface. That made things a bit more complicated, but after a couple email exchanges Mike got it figured out, and several of us got them all hooked up to test to make sure they were all working. Right now they are all set up in Mike's lab for a huddle test, all powered by a single battery via an impressive array of spliced power cables:
We ran the GPS units out the window to the grass outside so they could get some sky-view. They've gotten many weird looks from passers-by already.
