CQSRG FS03 Monitoring Station: Technical Details
It is located 16 km SW of Gin Gin, and 14 km WSW of Wallaville, as shown in the accompanying image, at Latitude -25.1068 and Longitude 151.8667.
The equipment is located in an unused calf shed about 150 m south of the St Agnes Creek, in the Horse Camp metropolitan area, on a property named "Four Seasons" (hence the station name). The FS03 station consists of a Kelunji Classic KA1 seismograph fitted with a Mark Products triaxial L43D seismomener sensor. The sensor sits atop a cylindrical concrete column 400 mm in diameter and sunk 1 m into the top-soil.The basement of the column is imbedded into dense granitic clay, which in turn surmounts a basalt and granite basement.
Power is supplied by a solar photovoltaic system regulated at 12 Volts d.c.
Communications to the station is by means of a Freewave spread-spectrum UHF radio RS232 link to a house 250 m to the north.
