You might well be the closest neighbour. I don't know of anybody with
sesmintors or geophones near me here in Iceland. There might be alot of
reasons why you don't get earthquakes that are below 2,5 on the ricther
scale. The most obivus reasion in my mind is problay the noise in your
area. But according the exsperts at the I.M.O that i did speak with,
more the noise i get it is going to be harder for me to pickup small
earthquakes. Lucky for me, the noise around me seems to be minimal.

The house i life in is a concret made, and has a rock below it. So i
think it is going to be easy for me to pick earthquakes near me, if they
happen. The area i life in is not active, but the closest active regions
are about 50 - 100 km away from me. In East and South of where i life.
Both volcanos and fraction zones.

I plan to build a brodband sisemonitors as soon as i can. The bad thing
is that i can't place my geophone outside, becose of the weather, i will
risk a weather damage to the geophone, not nessary from wather, but
tempature changes.

Regards. (Sorry for the spelling errors)
