This station is stand alone so I think there is nothing I can do to change the CPM conversation rate. I contacted mw0uzo as soon as my tube was changed and it is in hand.

I have tried to move the tube away from the cabinet by extending the cable but the CPM go up even more. Until I find a solution for the spikes when the cabinet lights are on I have dimmed the LEDs by 50% and this seems to have sorted it for now.

I believe you can still use the "radmon.exe" to change your alarm threshold.
The alarm setting has nothing to do with the data you send with the GK-WiFi.

Thanks BroHogan have downloaded "radmon.exe" and set the alarm and warning settings and have changed my station description to show my new tube.

I have changed the conversion factor as I now have a SBM-19 tube. I have set it to 0.0018 as this is what another user has used. Any idea if this is correct?

The GK kit sends the dose rate but it looks like Radmon does it's own conversion.

Yes, Radmon expects CPM only, and converts units using the user-supplied factor.
