Ok some of you who keep a regular check on stations on radmon.org might have notice my station information change to 'Testing radmon.org radbox-20' or something along those lines.

That's because I have been making an external, waterproof background radiation monitoring box that will be available to buy on radmon.org.

Its features:
- Regulated tube HT power supply
- SBM-20 tube
- Waterproof case with cable gland
- Waterproof count LED
- Flange mounting case for easy fixing
- LED and audio click can be enabled/disabled as required
- Connects to your PC via 1 x USB and 1 x gold plated 3.5mm jack into Mic In or Line In
- Can use RadLog on Windows or pyradmon.py on Linux and other platforms (thx Thimo :) )
- 10m of high quality 4.8mm diameter cable, flexible and well screened







Its not quite complete yet, the case decorations need to be chosen and a better USB plug found. But its very close to being completed.
Price is to be announced once prototype is complete. It will be well under £100 and there will be a cheaper DIY version and also a high sensitivity SBM-19 version, called the radbox-19.
I would like to make a test run of 10 units, so need 10 preorders. Would anyone be interested? Thoughts and comments welcome!

Yeah I'd be interested in one. Depending on the price of course. ;)

Is the case aluminium?

Great :) The case is plastic to minimise any attenuation of incoming radiation.

Looks epic. :D
I see it has both audio and usb, nice.
Great for programmers to test their work..
I'll see if I soon have the money available. ^_^

Cool we wouldn't want to be scaring those betas away. It looks a bit like a metal case in the pics.

Do you think the audio and maybe even the LED is nessesary on a unit like this? Your more than likely to have those functions switched off once the unit is mounted. Just a thought.

Personally, I would have no audio, but would have the LED. The audio and LED can be turned on or off with a jumper inside the unit.
