Hi Everyone,

I received this request for information from Matthew Campbell regarding
seismograph systems located in schools around the US. Attached with his email
message was this M$ Word document that should be filled out and
sent to Matthew.

If you can help out that would be great.

Note: I now have a new email address. The email address COCHRANE@..............
has been changed to LCOCHRANE at WEBTRONICS dot COM. I needed to do this do to
too much SPAM being sent to my old address. Please do not place my new address
on any Web pages. See for more
