if it's any help, I picked up the 3.0 mag quake at Fort William, 
Scotland on the 10th of December.  I'm probably about 150 Km away, see 
(I'm just to the right of Edinburgh, having fallen off the map!).

I have a single, vertical 4.5 Hz geophone and got a very respectable 
trace from it.  I would agree, though, that life is more "exciting" with 
a long period device, like a Lehman, unless you live "on top of a 
volcano", as I used to do.
