I wouldn't really expect to pick up a quake from Greece with a geophone
at the distance you are at. You really have to have a longer period
device to detect it. I'm not sure if the spike on my geophone was the P
wave or just something local.
Either way, the geophone spike was brief compared to the 90 minutes or
so that the quake grumbled on for. Maybe you should have a go at making
something like a Lehman. They're not too difficult and you probably
have a spare channel on your amp and A/D.
I've spent the afternoon replacing the desk lamp in the enclosure with 3
car lights. I'm starting off by feeding them 5 volts from an old PC
power supply. If that isn't warm enough then I'll switch to 12 volts.
Thanks to Chris Chapman for pointing this out, it's made a huge difference.
