I hate asking simple questions…but I feel a bit lost with the Boom.
I have (separate devices) a Shake and a Boom. With the Shake, I have a fairly quiet Helicorder and I can easily see distant (large) quakes. I believe there are better ways to review that data, but I never have because I have never needed to. The helicorder serves my interest (casual interest) and I know it is feeding the network for anyone else to be able to use that data if needed.
But…my Boom’s helicorder is, I believe, all noise. I assume I need to filter it, but I’m not sure how…I’ve looked at the various pages about using other software packages, but I’ll admit for some reason I can’t grasp what I need to do.
Attached is what my Boom’s helicorder’s looks like. The Boom is inside, with the tubing run outside behind my suburban house and a “fake fur” style microphone cover over the end of the tube.
My interest area for the Boom is about large events in the area…meteor, thunderstorm, etc., as well as feeding data to the network.
Is my Boom too noisy to be useful, or do I just need to filter it down to a usable format?
