You need to prepare a few pieces of information before you start.

1) Your geiger counter model and the type of tube inside it
2) The conversion factor for your tube. This is a number that converts CPM into uSV/hr. For the SBM-20 it is 0.0057
3) The decimal format latitude and longitude of your location. Go to Google Maps, go to where you want the marker to be positioned, right click and select 'What's here?'. The info window that pops up gives you the coordinates. Latitude, longitude.
4) The password you want to use to send data. This data is sent unencrypted to support simple and homebuilt geiger counters, so use something unique but unimportant.
5) The warning and alert levels in CPM. For the SBM-20 that would be 50 and 100 respectively. For a more sensitive tube, perhaps 100 and 200. For an alpha detecting pancake perhaps 250 and 400.

*****Please Note: We are experiencing issues with verification emails not getting through to some users with Google (@gmail, @googlemail), Microsoft (@hotmail, @outlook) and Yahoo. It seems that the big email services don't like emails from small servers and whilst some go into junk, others simply never get there. If you have access to another email provider (a smaller provider) then please try and use that. If you use one of the big email providers and manage to get registered, there is still a chance that you may not receive alert emails from your station. If you have already registered with one of the big providers and have not received your verification email then please go to the chat page and speak to an admin. Usually Simomax has chat open, but isn't necessarily online, so if you see Simomax in the chat and get no response, please just leave a message and he will most likely pick it up.
