My shake station is currently located on a thick slate slab sitting on a soild block pillarwhich is sitting on a large 5 inch thick concrete base. This is all located in a flat-roofed precast concrete garage which is located at least 15m from the nearest building (my workshops). Now, the sensitivity is excellent and everything is fine and dandy until I have heavy rain or the wind blows. In North Wales these are not rare events. I can see from the traces when the weather is bad - not what I really wanted!
So, I propose to move the station to a large waterproof plastic container which will be at sub ground level and sitting on a couple of deep concrete pillars. A wooden outer container (roof) will keep off the rain and wind from the container.
My question is how far do I have to be from the existing concrete garage to be sure that none of the “vibrations” from the current structure are transmitted to the new location?
