As follow up, I have just rebooted my GEE, and noticed right away all those stations you mentioned have gone gray, meaning they are not available. I
wouldn't go by that though. Regardless of whether a station is in gray, white, or blue, select the station anyways and try to load it. You might be
surprised to find a grayed out station loads just fine.
This has happened many, many times, so anymore I don't go by the color of the station. I
go by whether the station loads or not. In this case though, those particular stations are definitely down for the moment- cause they won't load at
In general, something I have noticed about GEE, is that the longer you have it open (I have mine open for several days sometimes without shutting
down), the more fidgety it becomes. Sometimes if you load a bunch of broadband stations at first, and those run for a while- but then you want to open
some EHZ stations 10 hours later after GEE has been running, you'll get an error message- and GEE will error on any EHZ station you try to display,
no matter the network.
To combat this, I have found that if you think you are going to monitor EHZ stations at all (especially near volcanoes, as often this is what they are
mostly used for)- THEN LOAD ANY EHZ STATIONS FIRST- before you load any broadband stations at all. Once you've got all your EHZ's open and working
that you want to see, THEN go back to station chooser, select your broadband stations, and load those.
And remember: Always select "Vertical Only" and monitor only vertical channels to save bandwidth. If a quake happens, THEN you can load N and E
channels, if you really want to. Their amplitudes will often be a bit larger than the vertical channels. But sometimes they won't.
