Background compensation

Hello,

from the data sheet of my geiger tube I know that the tube itself hast about 10CPM shielded background radiation.
But I'm not sure if I should subtract this value from my reading of my DIY geiger counter to get a correct measurement.

How do other project deal with the background radiation of the tube?

best regards
John

John, Tube noise seems like a blurry subject with very little meaningful informaton easily accessible.
The subject has recently been discussed within an email group I'm a part of, and one participant in this group has done a little research and experimentation.
Here is a link t his work - craigeroochi.neocities.org/rad.htm#question

as far as I'm aware, tube noise in not considered when submitting data to radmon.org
