My OpenSource ESP8266 Geiger Counter Project
« on: July 29, 2021, 02:13:49 pm »
Hi all;

    I  have made a network gerger counter project. just like KiwiSDR Radio project . I want't to build a Geiger Count network.

    Before my project . this is a similar project like radioactive@home:http://radioactiveathome.org/en/  .but this project looks like abandoned。 and the hardware is very expensive for
 
    some  developing country。

    My proejct use Chinese M4011 geiger tube(a  re-production version of J305β tube)。this tube can easy buy on 1688 or taobao, and still produce 。it's price is 100¥(only 15$)。and it have a low noise than some

    USSR  tube

    another hardware use common  In line component , easy to buy and welding
 

    here is full project include PCB and software  :

    https://github.com/11tools/kiwicount

   Youtube Video link
   

   The work picture:

   

   Local Network page:

Thanks.

Can your project be used to detect X-ray intensity?

Can this tube detect alpha and beta particles? Most of the cheap tubes can only detect gamma. I want one that can be used to check food in the store aisle discretely. (headphone jack or bluetooth headphone is best for privacy)

A good survey meter bought to do this can easily cost over $500, too much..

My ideal meter would add a sensitive (indoor GPS capable) GPS and logging so one could review its readings for the day and where it was when it saw those peaks..

Skytraq GPSs are sensitive enough to record meaningful locations indoors, like in supermarket aisles.For antenna the Sarantel quadrifilar helix mini antennas are excellent.

For sensors for surveying food one needs an "alpha window".
