As an Electronic Technician for the US Geological Survey, my primary task is to keep the Microwave Network in top running condition. This Microwave System carries all of the Seismic Telemetry Data to our Menlo Park Office. As the Microwave Network hops from site to site, the Seismic Telemetry Data is fed into the system. It comes to the mountain top microwave sites via VHF/UHF radio, or short hop telephone lines. The map below shows the Microwave Path the network covers. As you read this, odds are that I'm at one of the mountain top sites.

For additional information on the California Seismic Network, please see this external site.
