I've been doing some searching and price comparison yet I would love to hear some expert opinions and advice. I am looking for a dosimeter , not necessarily the cheapest but also not a perfect lab working device. My main goal is to to learn about dosimetry and radiation and also ofcorse out of interest. I will also at one point in the forthcoming months will go to Chernobyl, possibly also inside the plant itself. I am currently setting my sights on the Gammascout, any thoughts about it? I see some cheaper analog ones on ebay, the ones that were produced by the CDC back in the day of the Cold war, but the drawback for me seems their size, on the plus side is probably their longevity due to their robust design and simply electronics. One could probably change some older caps inside and inspect it and it is good to go, not sure about the geiger-muller tubes inside probably they would need a change. Also on the other hand I have seen folks upgrade their gammascout digital ones after years of service with a larger more sensitive tube etc. So what do you think?
