Each seismic station consists of a Kinematrics TH-11 telemetry housing which includes I/O with multiplexer and lightening protection, amplifier/filter, VCO, power supply and calibration module. Also a transmitting antenna with transmitter, a car battery for power and a solar panel to recharge the battery are included. The seismometer used at each site is a Mark Product, Inc., Model L-4.
The stations are named SB1, SB2 and SB3. SB1 is located at the highest elevation for the purpose of being utilized as a repeater station as well as a seismic site. At this location, signals are received from SB2, SB3, CGM, and MDO and are multiplexed with the seismic signal from SB1 and the multiplexed signals are than transmitted on to the Kidd Seismological Observatory on the UTEP campus where that are demultiplexed and recorded on paper.
