natural disasters + human error or design flaw + radioactive piles = difficult or impossible-to-contain radionuclides
You have a flashlight or 20 for 'when the 'stroid hits in Dec 2012' but what about knowing if
there are new beta or gamma emitters in your environment ?
I have finally dropped coin on a detector, and was wondering what other peeps are using,
or if other peeps are even considering adding one to the toybox ?
I ordered a GQ GMC-300, which will be all the detector needed if the prevailing winds become
soured with ionizing radiation...also good for rockhounding....
When I get it, I will post up pics. Anyone else ?
It makes total sense to own one, Fukushima disaster is still getting worse not better,
and well yes I am actually worried I may come across recycled metal or
other stuff that might be a lot higher than background radiation, and I'd like to know about it,
so I can decide to make distance, or at least know the radioisotopes are around me.
