I have a yellow Geiger counter I bought years ago. CD type. It is occasionally fun to play with for messing around with radioactive rocks, clocks and dials, green Uranium glass etc. but it does not get a great deal of use. Thus I learned my lesson by having to buy new battery holders and keep batts. out aside, in storage.

I assume you use it for work? What kind of counter do you have?

Yes, it is a work tool. The unit we have is a Mazur Instruments PRM-9000.

Nice unit. I collect the old 1950's looking for uranium counters, then became interested in modern counters.
In your line of work do you find many radioactive problems?

Looks to me like someone did a sloppy addition of the common "glow in the dark paint" that you could buy anywhere at the time.


Yup, I remember having that glow in the dark paint as a kid. I presume that it was not made with radium, but then it was the 60's... our house was painted with lead paint inside because that was the "best". I have to go now, the sixth finger on my third hand just fell off.

Don't worry, it'll grow back by Christmas.

No we have yet to find a radioactive problem. However, private and government building owners and managers are seeing a dramatic increase in "the building is making me sick" complaints over the past 20 years, so one of the things we do, especially when the occupants mention cancer, is a rediation study (there is a very long list of other things we can check for, and it many of the laboratory analysis methods are expensive).
