    Welcome Nikolas.

    Most of us here are in the United States.

    In your area do you have many problems with buried old artillery shells and bombs?

    Here in the US the last big conflict was the Civil War 150 years ago. Some old artillery shells are found now and again and about a year ago a collector in Virginia was killed when he tried to open one. In Washington DC there is one neighborhood that had to be excavated after it was found gas shells from WWI were buried there.

    Hi, thank you.
    Well, Cyprus is not in the US. It is an island in the Mediterranean sea.

    Hi,

    Here in Cyprus, there are not buried any artillery shells or bombs. Only in Nicosia the Capital City, my colleagues during locating, have sometimes interference from buried pieces of metal, since the city was bombed 45 years ago from the Turkish army. In my region of responsibility, (Limassol District) what sometimes can be found are ancient copper remains.

    So... I looked up Cyprus and I got one question: Who could work in a city like that? The place is beautiful. I couldn't get anything done. I'd be wandering the streets checking everything out.

    I'm impressed with Cyprus.

    Well, we have to earn our salary somehow! It is true that the economy of Cyprus is based on tourism, so the government has invested in this and the improvement is obvious. Topology helps very much, warm sea, nice beaches, welcoming people, ancient places, history etc. But the main services (electricity, etc) were I work, have to work well enough to keep the people (citizens and tourists) happy.

    Locating, has to be done by authorized persons only. The Archeological department has declared the ground search by unauthorized locators a crime because Cyprus have many ancient places (so coins, metal ancient ruins etc. can be found in many places). Only services like electricity where I work, telephony and some others can proceed on ground search freely. Not that there are not any unauthorized private locators, but they act out of law.
    Anyhow, if we count the authorized persons, they should be around 20.

    As I recall S&N Locating had in Virginia 200 locators. Then there were all the other firms.

    Sometimes we would trip over each other.
