As yet there is no available measurement of radial BAOs at z > 0.5 with which to actually calibrate our speed-trap, but these are expected soon 1 from the recently completed AAT WiggleZ survey (Blake et al 2010), and in a few years from the ongoing BOSS survey (White et al 2011).

Soon after the submission of the first version of this paper, three new measurements of the BAO feature appeared: one from 6dFGS at z ∼ 0.1 in Beutler et al (2011), one from WiggleZ at z = 0.6 in Blake et al (2011), and one from SDSS photo-z’s at z = 0.55 in Carnero et al (2012).
