My new dosimeter from a nuclear plant

  1. Oct 9, 2015 #1
    I got this off ebay for $55. This is one that was used at the Peach Bottom Nuclear Generating Station in Pennsylvania. It measures in mR and has both a rate and dose alarm that can be set for a custom amount. Uses one 9v battery. Not really sure what I can use it for, but I was thinking about just walking around with it for a while and see what happens.

    Thank you, and that is an awesome collection. dlgoff. I have two of the GraLab Darkroom clocks. I use one for a kitchen timer and the other for timing videos and whatever else.
