In process of upgrading 1RU to 2RU using a VMII-2CUG (2nd channel upgrade kit).

The kit consists of a pendulum, sensor, and damper assemblies, cables, all hardware necessary to mount assemblies to unused post of 1RU (channel unit).

The kit will allow full North/South/East/West detection with the VolksMeter (ARPSN 1 is currently running one N/S sensor.) and will provide better data reporting for ARPSN [A VMII-2CUG assembly page will be added with pictures.]

I noticed this morning ARPSN 0001 event collection was almost equal to USGS reporting and the 2nd sensor should narrow that. Here is the location of the USGS page I check often:


and here is an example of where I am considering setting the point (magnitude 3) at which ARPSN issues an alert (in my area) via the APRS network:
