Hello, all.

I will hopefully have my RadMon+ (no relation) DIY Geiger Counter kit put together in the next few days and configured for online operation. It's runs the popular ESP8266 Arduino microcontroller and has got an SBM-20 tube, plus a BME280 Temp/Humidity/Pressure sensor.

I've got a beautiful view of 3 Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station right outside my front door.

Thanks for the welcome. I aim to finish the kit tomorrow evening. I may not have it boxed in its final enclosure, but I'm eager to get it online.

The Radmon+ has been running here in my office for a couple days now. Many thanks to BroHogan for all the support!

The unit still needs permanently mounted in an enclosure. The enclosure has yet to arrive in the mail. Presently I have plans that it will simply run off house current, and I want to mount the BME280 environmental sensor outdoors.

(Don't be concerned about the 50 CPM reading earlier. I held a smoke detector near the Geiger tube.)
