Subject: New Filters for Adaptive Filtering 

When Sanjit and I were looking at the adaptive filtering system on Monday and Friday, we noticed that turning on the Accelerometers (which had been used in the past) seemed to do good things, but that turning on the seismometers (which I just put into the system last week) made the OAF output integrate up.  Rana pointed out that this is an indication of a missing high pass filter.  And indeed, when I put the seismometers in, I neglected to copy the high pass filter at low frequencies, and the low pass at 64Hz from the accelerometer path to the seismometer path.  The accelerometers had a HP at 1Hz, which is okay since they don't really do useful things down to the mHz level.  I gave all of the seismometers HP at 1mHz.  These are now in the filter banks in the ASS_TOP_PEM screen.  The accelerometers are on channels 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 and the seismometers are on channels 2, 3, 4, 10, 11, 12, 24.

I now need to modify the upass script to turn these filters on before doing adaptive filtering.
