Title: Can GW Interferometers detect low frequency periodic signals?

We discuss how the existing GW interferometers could detect low frequency periodic signals. The recent discovery of J0651, a pair of white dwarfs with a 12.5 min orbital period, suggests that near-by sources of GWs with periods of 1 min or less may exist. In that case the emitted GWs could be observable by LIGO/VIRGO. We also report on a new upper limit on the anisotropy of space.
