Hi Ron,

My experience living under planes taking off from busy Orlando, FL airport is 
it won't make a bit of difference. During the winter I live in Orlando and 
operate a vertical leaf spring seismometer with a 1 Hz low pass filter. Very 
little if any cultural noise got through the filter at another location about 
40 m from a busy highway with many big trucks. There I could see the highway 
noise on an oscilloscope before the filter but none of it got through the 1 
Hz low pass filter.

Good luck,
