Amateur Radio Public Seismic Network (ARPSN) Seismicity & Weather NOTES

January 29, 2012

Personally, I thought healing would occur much quicker, but it is taking longer than i imagined. For example, if I put an hour of effort into doing something similar to work, I end up having to rest for 4 to 8 hours, but I am not complaining because, my oncologists keep telling me how lucky I am to be alive.

It appears my recovery (as usual) will take longer than anticipated [see cancer journey below].

In order to continue with ARPSN, I am relocating most seismic related equipment to my recuperation area and have re-created an ironbox LAN that will allow me to upload ARPSN heliplots and maybe some research heliplots to Larry's Current PSN Seismicity page.

As usual, I will not be handing out anticipated "due dates," as ;-) it never works & I am not in a hurry. (fwiw) 'The cancer stuff' left some rough edges I need to get beyond.

Thank You for your patience, Curtis

Added 5.000 Hz/Poles = 1- Low Pass Filter to ARPSN Sensors in order to reduce/eliminate local noise

June 8, 2011

ARPSN Sensors have been moved from Cobb [mountain] to my ;-) less rustic cancer recuperation location [see below] and heliplot uploading has, once again, commenced.

I am interested in seeing what a five mile, as the crow flies, difference between station locations will make in data reception; remembering the mountain worked as a signal amplifier (for me), with most sensors. ++ 201106.27 - The "mountain" provides better signal strength than where I am currently at, in the "meadow," but am not missing anything. In other words, I no longer feel the earthquake motion and sound as I did on the mountain.

The weather station remains on the mountain and data will be updated randomly. I may put weather data on a secondary APRS WX system that links with Internet. ++ 201106.2 the Weather station may get moved to the "meadow."

Currently battling cancer:

Update: Monday, April 11, 2011

After 2 major & 2 minor surgeries,

Won First Round, Two rounds to go.

Update: Monday, May 02, 2011

After 1 major surgery,

Won Second Round, One round to go.

Update: Monday, June 27, 2011

After 25 radiation treatments on face & 25 radiation treatments on neck,

Won Third Round, 5 years to go before probable "All Clear (of) Cancer" report.

Fact: I Was Very Lucky _or_ Somebody Was Watching Over Me!

Healing time in spurts:

3 weeks, or more, until radiation treatment symptoms disappear,

6 months, or more, before saliva glands and taste buds return (cmf**),

6 to 9 months, or more, before facial, neck, and jaw nerves return,

4 to 5 months, or more, before major teeth replacement can begin.

[** cmf = crossing my fingers, because some may not return and that goes for nerves too.]

Anticipate restoring Heliplots ASAP.

Intend to continue working on this project!

Thank You for your Patience, Curtis
