We present follow-up observations of the pulsating subdwarf B (sdB) star EC 01541-1409 as part of our efforts to resolve pulsation spectra for use in asteroseismological analyses. This paper reports on data obtained from a single-site campaign, during 2008, and a multisite campaign, during 2009. From limited 2008 data, we were able to clearly resolve and pre-whiten 24 periods. A subsequent multisite campaign spanning nearly 2 months found over 30 individual periodicities most of which were unstable in amplitude and/or phase. Pulsation amplitudes were found to the detection limit, meaning that further observations would likely reveal more periodicities. EC 01541-1409 reveals itself to be one of two sdB pulsators with many pulsation frequencies covering a large frequency range. Unlike the other star of this type (PG 0048+091), it has one high-amplitude periodicity which appears phase stable, making EC 01541-1409 an excellent candidate for exoplanet studies via pulsation phases. No multiplets were detected leaving EC 01541-1409 as yet another rich p-mode sdB pulsator without these features, limiting observational constraints on pulsation modes.
