I’ve wanted a working Geiger counter for a while. It seems like it would be rather handy to have one as a random number generator, and another to install inside a weather station to monitor local radiation levels.
With what’s been going on in Fukushima, I decided it was time to start the project.
Spark Fun have been out of Geiger counter kits for a while and I wasn’t quite ready to just buy a Geiger Müller Tube on ebay and design my own power supply, so I placed an order with Electronic Goldmine a few weeks back.
The courier company has attempted to deliver it, so hopefully I’ll be able to write more soon. In the mean time I’ll spend some more time researching exactly how these things work.
