Hi my name is Brett. My geiger counter is an Arduino IDE Radiation Detector DIY Kit ver. 2.2 modified to version v5.1 with 7 segment LED display with version 11 software
My GM tube has now changed from an SBM-20 to an SBM-19 and is mounted outside on my house wall. I have changed to conversion rate to 875 on the Geiger kit.
My Geiger counter is located in Kenley Surrey UK.
Regards.

Still a work in progress but it's now online.

SBM 20 tube needs connecting.

Main board is an old GK type kit. It's so old I can't remember where it came from. I have upgraded the hardware to v5.1 and software v12 from the diygeigercounter website.

I have then modified the hardware and connected 2 x 8 7 segment display modules that use a MAX7219 IC to drive them.

A PIR is also connected to turn off the displays when no one is around.

I have also added a GK logging kit from the diy geiger counter site and attached an OLED display to it.

My test site is up and running here Kenley Radiation Monitor
