Hello,

I have a Radex RD1212 and would like to contribute data. I do not see anyone else on the map near me. Also I'd like to take it to different areas in the State. Would like information about how to submit data from both my home and from other areas I might travel to.
One of these days I would like to add one of those kits I see mentioned on your site.

http://quartarad.com/product/radex-rd1212/
Specificstions:
Data transfer to PC. Cycle 40 seconds.
0.05 ~ 999 µSv/h; Vibration / audio.
Beta, Gamma, X-Ray radiation.
Eng, De, Fr, Rus, Jp
Flashlight.

Ambient radiation range 0.05 – 999 µSv/h
Gamma scale range 0.1 – 1.25 MeV
X-ray scale range 0.03 – 3.0 MeV
Beta scale range 0.4 – 3.5 MeV
Reproducibility of results (at P=0.95)
where P is a doze rate in µSv/h
± 15 + 6/P %
Alarm threshold levels 0.05 – 1.2 µSv/h
Measurement Cycle 10 to 1 ** seconds
Measurements continuous
Batteries ("AAA")
Time of continuous operation 300 ***
Dimensions 3.8" х 2.6" х 1"
Weight (without batteries) 2.8 oz
* The more Measurement Cycles are conducted the greater is reliability of indications.
** Measurement Cycle decreases when the ambient radiation exceeds 3.0 µSv/h.
*** Two batteries with a capacity 1350MAh, at a level of a ambient radiation not to exceed 0.3 µSv/h, with factory settings.
Units of Measure µSv/h
Number of sensors: SBM20-1
(Geiger–Muller counters) 1
Number of pre-set Audio-alarm thresholds more than 100
Vibration Alarm yes
Backlight yes
Background radiation calculation function («Background» mode) yes

Hi Bob,
It would be excellent to have a real-time site in your area. The Radex seems to store samples locally for later transfer to a PC and/or export to text or csv file. This site requires the use of compatible Windows or Linux software, or a serial-to-Ethernet module supporting both the server and the detector serial data (e.g. BroHogan's GKnet kit - see the 'About' page). I don't see the Radex listed as compatible right now, but if you can hear clicks, there is likely a way to connect it.

I connect using a USB cable to Micro USB connector. It stores up to 160 readings for upload. I have uploaded readings on the Quartarad website map. I'm hoping it can somehow fill in a blank area on the map for this site. .

Hi Nevada Bob
Welcome to radmon.org!

This piece of software might help with your geiger counter
http://radmon.org/index.php/kunena/other-software/303-radmon-radex-one

The author had kindly made a module that can be used in RadLog, so your counter should be supported in the next release.

Check your PMs for the password for data submission.
