The OMU is also used in triggering. An on/off
signal is derived for each of the 8 ``towers'' (the three views in each region)
by requiring a hit in two of the three views. The OM1 signal requires one
tower to be on. The OM2 signal requires two non-adjacent towers to be on.
(Because of the overlap, a single muon could trigger two adjacent towers.)
