My sensors (SEP + 3 channel 4.5 Hz geophone) were 1400 km away.  Not a
huge event.  The seismometer recorded this: (N-S 0.1 Hz lowpass)

The geophone recorded a 2 second spike in all three directions at the
arrival of the P wave, but this was nearly one minute after the
calculated arrival time, so it might have been local noise.
Otherwise, the quake only becomes clear on the geophone by some
filtering, e.g. lowpass at 1 Hz.
