Hi Meridith
I've been running my version of this since 1988. It is a 3 second horizontal with violin "E" string as the wires. It is a little larger than a shoe box and I see easily 7.0 magnitude quakes anywhere on earth. Several folks have duplicated my design with good results. I think there is a sketch of it in the PSN archives somewhere. If you are interested, I can send you some pictures.
