NEW! GQ GMC-300E Plus Pocket Geiger Counter, £129.99 inc next UK working day delivery*           

We now have the new and improved PLUS version of the hugely popular GMC-300E in stock and ready to ship. As before this smart, pocket size instrument is one of the most sensitive and sophisticated Geiger Counters we’ve ever sold, and the price remains the same! The GMC-300E Plus is designed in the US and is a great all-rounder, perfect for enthusiasts, schools, students, antique dealers and collectors, urban prospectors, rock hounds, gadget fans, doomsday preppers: in fact anyone who is curious about their environment. Although it is not intended for use in health and safety or safety-critical applications, it also makes a great learning aid for schools and colleges.

 

We’ll kick off with the new brighter, high contrast backlit LCD display. It can be set to show a continuous readout in microsieverts per hour (uSv/hr), counts per minute (CPM) or milliroentgen per hour (mR/h). This can be shown as large font digits, a more comprehensive multi-line text display or as a continuous moving graph.

 

That’s just for starters; it has an audible ‘clicker’ and user-set alarm beep that sounds when the count or measurement exceeds a pre-set limit.  New on the Plus model is and audio data port  with a 3.5mm jack for connection to devices like smartphones and tablets, PCs and headphones. It also has a red LED flasher that blinks with every detected event.There’s a built-in real time clock, used to time-stamp data, logged at second, minute or hourly intervals and it can store up to 7 days worth of readings and user set data (note, location etc.) on its internal flash memory. The display auto rotates, so it can be mounted or used inverted, and there’s a standard mini USB port on the top.

 

This is where it gets really interesting. The relocated side mounted USB socket serves two purposes; first it charges the internal battery from a PC or the supplied car and mains charge adaptors and, second, it allows the GMC-300E Plus to communicate with a PC running Windows (XP onwards) or Linux operating systems. The data link can be used to provide a real-time numeric and graphical display on a computer or laptop screen using free data/history viewer software. You can also use it to download (and play back) data from the GMC-300E Plus stored on your PC.

 

Okay, that was the quick tour; there’s lots more but, for tech heads, here are the key specs and features at a glance:

Soeks Defender, £160.00 inc. next UK working day delivery*

NEW LOW PRICE!!

We now have good stocks of one of the latest additions to the Soeks family of pocket radiation monitors. It’s the distinctive Defender and builds on the spec of the popular and very dependable Soeks 01M, (see below) with the addition of a number of new and useful features. The first and most noticeable difference is the bright yellow case (hover mouse over picture for close-up) with smart new buttons and a comfortable ‘rubberised’ finish. However, the real stars of the show are under the bonnet and at the top of the list is Cumulative Dose Measurement – with elapsed time display, reading up to 100 Sieverts.

Measurements of Level and Dose are made and displayed just 10 seconds after switch on, and updated continuously thereafter. In addition to the continuous level display and user settable level alarm -- as featured on the 01M -- the Defender has am additional cumulative Dose Level alarm. Power consumption has been reduced for longer battery life.

The rest of the specification is broadly similar to the 01M (see below) and includes classic features like the colour LCD with easy to understand colour-coded alerts, showing ‘Normal’, High’ and ‘Dangerous Radiation Background’ messages. It can be set to display readings in microsieverts/hr (uSv/hr) or microRoentgen/hr (uR/hr) It has a one–minute trend graph, active status indicator, Normal and Alarm dose levels, battery level, keyboard lock, auto power off, USB connected indicator, Dual Language (English or Russian) menu display, adjustable display brightness, sound level and alert tones and a choice of green/grey/blue/white display themes. It uses the highly respected SBM-20-01 Geiger Müller detection tube, which is sensitive to beta, gamma and X-Ray radiation, with an indicated range of 0.03 to 1000uSv/hr and it weighs in at just 70g (with batteries) and measures only 43 x 105 x 18mm.

Soeks-01M Geiger Counter, English Display & Manual £170.00 inc next UK working day delivery* (available for Saturday delivery)

Currently out of stock, but how about the Defender (see above)

The Soeks-01M is one of the smallest and most sophisticated pocket Geiger Counters we've seen. We could wax lyrical about the small size, neat design, super sensitive Geiger Muller tube (incidentally, it's the same SBM-20 type as used in the Radex 1503 and 1706 models) and smart colour LCD display but rather than witter on we'll let the specs speak for themselves. Just take a

look at these features:

 

Beta, Gamma X-Ray sensitive

Colour TFT display (4 colour themes, variable brightness & always on/time out)

Three independent display channels:

Numeric in microsievert/hour or microroentgen/hour

One minute trend, graph

Visual colour code normal/high/danger

Audible event and alarm bleeper (3 volume setting)

User preset alarm level

Dual language on-screen display (English & Russian)

USB charger socket (for optional recharge batteries)

Powered by 2 x AAA cells (10 hour operation)

Operating temperature range °? -10.+50

Weight 62g (with batteries)

Dimensions mm 120 × 52 × 26mm

 

Still not impressed? Well, for those interested in performance take a look

at this little lot:

 

Indicated range 0.003 - 100uSv

Gamma radiation equivalent dose rate (137Cs) µSv/h 0.1 - 999.9 ±25%

Gamma radiation equivalent dose (137Cs) mSv 0.001 - 9.999 ±25%

Energy ranges of measurement and energy dependence:

Gamma radiation MeV 0.05 - 3.0 MeV ±25%

Beta radiation MeV 0.5 - 3.0 MeV

Measurement time interval seconds 5 - 70 seconds

 

To sum up, the LCD screen gives a constantly updated numerical readout in microsieverts (or microroentgens) plus a colour-coded graph display that shows the relative activity over the previous minute, and a colour coded alert panel that indicates normal, high and danger. It has an audible bleep in response to detected ‘events’ and there’s a user-programmable alarm to alert you if the levels exceed a preset threshold. It runs on standard AAA cells, or you can use re-chargeable cells, and charge them through the mini USB socket on the base (USB lead and two rechargeable batteries included). The simple to use on-screen menu lets you change the screen brightness, backlight timeout (or set it for always on), colour theme, change menu and display language and, lastly, set the alarm threshold.

Gamma Master II "Atomic" Watch, £525.00 inc. UK courier delivery   

This has to be the very last word in luxury personal radiation monitoring and precision timekeeping. It’s the remarkable Gamma Master II PM1208 radiation sensor watch, a unique combination of Swiss engineering and a sophisticated gamma dosimeter, professionally calibrated by renowned radioactivity measurement experts Polimaster.

 

So who would want such an unusual device? Well, it’s a very long list, and includes just about anyone who wants to be able to keep on eye on their exposure to natural and man-made ionising radiation and, more importantly, be alerted when it rises above normal background levels. It will also be of particular interest to those who may come into contact with radioactive materials and radiation, working in hospital X-Ray and radiological medicine departments, undergoing radiotherapy, emergency and security personnel, the military, first responders and not forgetting people employed in the nuclear industry. You can also add airline pilots and frequent flyers that are exposed to higher than normal levels of cosmic radiation. Then there are geologists, mineralogists, miners, antique dealers and collectors, watch repairers and so on… We could go on, but let’s take a closer look at what it does.

 

It tells the time, of course, and the Gamma Master II has two clock displays: an accurate Swiss made, quartz-controlled analogue movement with luminous sweep second hand, and a secondary LCD display, showing hours, minutes, seconds, day, month and year, plus it has a daily alarm function. An electroluminescent backlight panel illuminates the display so it can be read at night and the tough but stylish stainless steel case is water-resistant and rated for depths of up to 100 metres (328 feet). Now for the really interesting stuff.

 

This unique watch contains a gamma-sensitive Geiger Müller tube radiation detector and monitoring circuitry designed to measure Dose Equivalent Rate (DER) and Dose Equivalent (DE), with programmable alarms to alert the wearer if the levels exceed a preset threshold. Dose Equivalent is a measure of radiation absorption by biological tissue, and an indication of potential health effects. This is expressed in internationally recognised standard units known as Sieverts. DER is a measure of DE in relation to time and the display on the Gamma Master II is constantly updated and shown in microsieverts per hour (µSv/hr). In addition, the Gamma Master II has a DER recording facility and it can store up to 500 readings, along with time and date, which can be uploaded* to a Windows PC** and displayed, graphed and recorded, along with readings from other Gamma Masters, using supplied software. The Gamma Master II’s DE reading, in millisieverts (mSv) gives the wearer a long-term indication of dose accumulation (1 – 9999 hours) and again there is a threshold alarm that sounds an audible bleep if DE exceeds a preset threshold.

 

To round off the key features, Gamma Master II has analogue bargraph indicators showing approximate percentage of DE and DER in relation to thresholds, a low battery indicator, full function reset button, switchable alarm mute. It is fitted with a high quality leather strap and it comes in its own heavily lacquered presentation case with instructions, CD-ROM and calibration certificate.

Radex RD1503 Geiger Counter with English display & manual, £189.99 inc next UK working day delivery* (available for Saturday delivery)

The Radex RD 1503 is extremely sensitive, easily registering natural background radiation, and highly accurate, with the 42mm backlit LCD panel giving constantly updated and averaged readings (in 10 second cycles) of exposure to a wide range of Beta and Gamma radiation. It is calibrated  in micro Sieverts or micro Rem per hour, switchable using the on-screen menu. This also controls the variable volume bleeper and setup options, plus a level control which lets you program the bleeper threshold to 0.3, 0.6 or 1.2 uSv/hr (30, 60 or 120 uRem/Hr).

The RD 1503 is sturdy, very well built, and remarkably easy to use, with just three buttons, for switching the unit on and off, switching the backlight on and navigating the on-screen menus. It’s compact too, measuring just 100 x 60 x 24mm – around the size of a pack of 20 cigarettes -- and it weighs just 90 grams, so it slips easily into shirt or trouser pockets. It is powered by one or two AAA cells, which can run the unit continuously for up to 550 hours (over 3 weeks!).

For the technically minded the range of measurement is from 0.05 to 9.99uSv/Hr (5 – 999 uRem/hr) and the gamma range is 0.1 to 1.25MeV.

NEW Re-Metered CD V-700 Classic Geiger Counter,

£154.00 FREE UK DELIVERY*

We have managed to secure a small stock of decommissioned Victoreen 6a/b CD V-700s that have had the meters removed. Unfortunately original meters are now rarer than hen’s teeth, so we’ve developed a modern replacement* . Otherwise they are completely original and in full working order. For a more detailed description see below.

 

They are in generally very good condition, no rust or corrosion, though there may be a few dinks and scratches on the case, and some samples have been touched up with a slightly off-shade yellow but overall they look really good for their age.

As usual with instruments of this age we can offer no guarantees as to their accuracy, but they are very sensitive and capable of detecting natural background radiation (beta and gamma) and higher levels up to and including lethal doses.

 

Each unit comes with an original high-impedance headphone, a carry strap and a copy of the original instruction and maintenance manual.

* Whilst the original check source labels are removed before export from the US, we will replace them with an inert source before shipping.

Please note that there may some scratches on one side of the case where the check source label has clumsily been removed (not by us we hasten to add…) * See note

CD V-700 (6A/6B) Classic & Original Geiger Counter, £225.00

including insured UK shipping*

This is a genuine piece of Cold War memorabilia, highly collectible and it works, too! The Victoreen CD V-700 was made for the United States Civil Defence corps throughout the 1960's and 70's. No expense was spared in their design and construction - they were built to survive a nuclear war, after all  - but they are very sensitive and will detect natural background radiation, as well as higher levels, up to and including lethal doses...

 

The device has a chrome-plated brass probe with a rotating ‘shield’ for discriminating between beta and gamma sources. It’s detachable and fits into the carry handle when not in use. The CDV700 has four ranges, covering 0 – 0.5, 0 – 5 and 0 – 50 mR/h (millirontgens per hour), with readings shown on the large meter. (They have not been calibrated for some time so we’re making no claims as to their accuracy). It is powered by 4 standard 1.5 volt D-Cells and with normal use will last several weeks or even months.

 

An original purpose-designed headphone will be included with the unit, to let you hear the characteristic ‘clicks’ when the probe is exposed to a radioactive source*.

 

The case is water resistant and made from tough cast alloy; the lower cover is held in place by two toggle clips. It weighs approximately 1.5kg (ex batteries) and measures 120 x 210 x 170mm.  They come with a copy of the instruction manual plus the original headphone and carry strap. * Whilst the original check source labels are removed before export from the US, we will replace them with an inert source before shipping.

 

*Overseas buyers -

we can offer 2 levels of shipping via insured courier service: 1-2 or 2-5 business days:

please contact us HERE for price details.

 

Please note that these units are getting on a bit and may show some signs of wear, though usually it's no more than some light scuffs , scratches or paint chips. However there is no corrosion and they are fully tested prior to despatch and are in good working order.

GeigerActiv pro mk 2, personal radiation monitor, now £115.00 inc next UK working day delivery* (available for Saturday delivery)  

The  GeigerActiv pro mk 2, exclusive to anythingradioactive, is a compact, smart-looking hand-held radioactivity monitor that can alert you to normal and elevated levels of beta and gamma radiation (minimum sensitivity =0.35 Mev).

Features include:

  • Extended  battery life giving between 200 and 400 hours of continuous operation from a single AAA cell
  • Beta and Gamma sensitivity
  • PC connectivity with free software
  • New round meter showing relative cpm
  • New belt clip
  • New rear mounted sounder
  • Audible power-on alert buzz
  • New single-button operation
  • Light and compact (about the size of a pack of cigarettes)

The presence of ionising radiation is indicated by a flashing red LED, an audible click from the built in piezo sounder and a clear visual indication on the front mounted moving coil meter. A second green LED remains continuously lit when the unit is switched on, to show that it is functioning.

 

It is a true Geiger Counter and by connecting it to a Windows PC (see note below) the free software, downloadable from our website, shows actual counts per minute (CPM) and total count. Furthermore this can be calibrated to display milliRontgens/hr (mR/hr). The results are also presented on a customisable real-time graph. Additionally the data can be stored to produce a detailed log, providing unlimited integration times, so you can measure very low levels of activity. The program also includes a web server, so results can be monitored remotely via a standard web browser. A PC connecting cable is supplied with the unit.

 

Designed and built in the UK, GeigerActiv pro measures just 60 x 30 x 105 mm (2.3 x 1.2 x 4.1 inches) and weighs just 91g (3.1 ounces) so it is just a little larger and not much heavier than a pack of cigarettes and slips easily into a coat or jacket pocket. There's just one control, a front-mounted power switch, so it is extremely easy to use and ideal for some discrete urban prospecting - granite kerbstones can be surprisingly 'lively' - checking antiques (old watches, clocks and instruments with radium dials, uranium doped ceramics and glass etc.), and keeping a check on your environment.

GeigerActiv pro SE (Solar Edition) now £125.00 - complete with USB charger & 2 rechargeable batteries & next UK working day delivery*

It’s the World’s First Nuclear Powered Geiger Counter. That’s right, this specially developed variant of the GeigerActiv pro mk 2 (above) derives its power from the biggest nuclear reactor of them all, our Sun. Fitted to the rear of the case is a silicon solar panel that charges a NiMh (nickel metal hydride) AAA cell inside the case. Two are supplied with the unit, so it’s always ready for use. The solar cell will even power the GeigerActiv pro SE directly on a really sunny day. If it’s cloudy or you want to do a spot of night-time detecting you can pop in an ordinary non-rechargeable AAA cell. Either way you can expect it to run continuously for between 200 and 400 hours on a fresh battery (depending on the type/state of charge). The outfit also comes with a USB charger, so the cells can be recharged from your PC or a suitable mains adaptor (not supplied). General specification and features are similar to the standard GeigerActiv pro.

 

GeigerActiv pro SE is a limited edition and specially built, so get your order in now to avoid disappointment. Please note that delivery to UK addresses may take up to 7 days; overseas orders will also take proportionately longer.

CD V-715 Survey Meter - out of stock: more soon???

Produced in the 1960s and not to be confused with a Geiger Counter (as recently seen on Amazon) the CD V-715 Survey Meters were produced during the Cold War for the US Civil Defense Corps but were never issued and have remained in storage until recently: this has resulted in a few dinks & chips around the dial, but they are in fair condition and come with a copy of the instruction and maintenance manual and shoulder strap.

 

These units are believed to be in good working order, but we have to say straight away that if you ever see the meter on one of these instruments move, you have probably just survived a nuclear explosion!

 

The 715 was designed for a post attack situation and only responds to dangerously high levels of radioactivity (scales read from 0.5 – 500 Roentgens/hr), to let survivors know it was (relatively) safe to emerge from their fallout shelters.

 

Nevertheless, experimenters may be interested to know that it is technically possible to modify these units to increase their sensitivity at least tenfold so that they will respond to much lower levels of radioactivity. However, this requires a fair amount of expertise in electronics and soldering skills and access to some specialised components. A link to instructions on how to modify these units will be provided to purchasers on request. 

 

These instruments use an Ion Chamber detector module and are powered by a single ‘D’ cell. It has two controls, a rotary switch for circuit/battery test, meter zero and range selection, and a rotary control for meter zero adjustment. The all-metal case is water resistant and the standard of construciton, and materials used are of the highest standard – as befits a product built on a cost no object government contract. It might not do much, but it’s a real conversation piece and, who knows, one day it may come in useful…

 

 

Please Note. These units are not capable of detecting natural background or even slightly elevated levels of radiation so they are being sold for their novelty value only.


K8 Nuke Safeguard Miniature Radiation Monitor, £165.00, 

FREE UK DELIVERY*

BACK IN STOCK!

It’s the K8 Nuke and no, your eyes are not deceiving you. . But how can something that small be any good? Well, US 'First Responders', the California Highway Patrol (CHiPs), Colorado and New Mexico State Police, Las Vegas Fire and Rescue and thousands of safety professionals, law enforcement officers and security personnel certainly think it is.

This marvel of microchip engineering is a fully-fledged radiation monitor and it is really is no larger than an ordinary postage stamp. It’s almost certainly the world’s most sensitive miniature radiological warning device.

 

Time to take a closer look. It has three bright LED indicators visible from the top and front. The green one flashes in the presence of radiation, typically once or twice a minute – depending where you are -- due to normal background radiation. The red LED flashes and an audible alarm sounds when the radiation level exceeds 5 mR/Hr (50uSv/h) or more. When the yellow LED flashes it’s time to change the battery, but that doesn’t happen very often as it’s capable of operating continuously for 1500 hours, that’s 60 days or more, on a standard CR2032 battery. On the back there’s a small on/off switch and a fiercely strong spring clip for attaching the monitor to your belt, pocket or lapel. It will not fall off!

 

This tiny device is designed and built in the US and it uses a solid state silicon-based detector that is sensitive to Gamma and X-Ray radiation in the range 30keV to 6.2Mev.

 

It’s a serious piece of kit, CE Approved, and it meets NCRP Guidance & Recommendations for Management of Terrorist Events. It also complies with EMC Directive Standards and is tested using NIST traceable sources. It’s tough too; the high impact housing exceeds ANSI 13.27 drop test requirements and it will happily operate between –20 degrees C and + 50 degrees C. If you are still wondering about the size, it measures just 25mm x 39mm x 12mm (1 x 1.5 x 0.475 inches), and tips the scales at only 13g or about 1/2oz and that’s small. The K8 comes with a battery already  fitted, so it's ready to go.

K8 Nuke First Responder Radiation Awareness Kit, £170.00, 

FREE UK DELIVERY*

Back by popular demand: once again we are proud to present the remarkable K8 Nuke Safeguard personal radioactivity monitor as the centrepiece of our exclusive Emergency Radiation Awareness Kit. In addition to the matchbox-sized K8 Nuke, the outfit also includes one of our 15-LED, 3-in-One flashlights, just click the switch for bright white, ultraviolet or red laser light.

You also get one of our Uranium Glass gems, which produces a weird green glow when illuminated by UV light. Don’t worry, the radioactivity is negligible, so it is safe and legal to own and unlikely to trigger any alarms.

Finally, you will also receive a 5-metre roll of ‘Caution Radiation Area’ warning tape, just in case your atomic pile develops a leak or spill (only joking – it is only for personal/novelty use, and definitely not for public display…and don't forget our usual warning about not shining lasers at people, pets or planes).

Everything is neatly packaged in a custom, foam-lined presentation tin, making it the perfect present for the budding nuclear scientist and First Responders in your life.

About the CDV-700

The CDV-700 is a true Geiger Counter, displaying an accurate count (when properly calibrated) of beta and gamma sources. This particular model was manufactured for the Civil Defense Corps by serveral companies in the US, including ENI, Victoreen and Lionel Electronic Laboratories (who also made toy trains). They were produced in fairly large numbers throughout the 1960s and 70s in preperation for expected nuclear conflict.

 

These devices are based around a 6993 Geiger Muller tube, driven by a simple high voltage circuit producing around 1000 volts. The output from the tube is processed by a transistorised pulse shaping network and integrating circuit, to operate the moving coil meter; a simple audio amplifier drives the supplied headphone.  Many different types of geiger counter were produced during this period but the CDV-700 6b is one of the most popular due to its high sensitivity, rugged construction and legendary reliability.
