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.

Victoreen CDV 700 (6A/6B) Classic & Original Geiger Counter
From £195 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.
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 instrument 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 CD V-700 uses a 6993 Geiger Müller detection tube and has four ranges, covering 0 – 0.5, 0 – 5
and 0 – 50 mR/h (millirontgens per hour) with readings shown on the large
meter. Be aware that these devices were designed for use by largely untrained personel in the aftermath of a nuclear detonation, to check contamination of food and survivors, so we're making no claims
as to their accuracy as serious scientific instruments.
It is powered by 4 standard and readily obtainable 1.5 volt D-Cells and with normal use will last several weeks or even months.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.
The outfit includes one of our exclusive Mini Speakers with LED flasher, a headphone adaptor with standard 3.5mm jack socket, and a pair of specially adapted high impedance headphones. We can also supply a pair of the original purpose-designed headphones as an optional extra - click HERE for more details. Also included is a copy of the instruction manual plus a carry strap.
Please note that the original radioactive check source labels were removed (often clumsily - so there may be scratches) prior to export from the US; we have, however, replaced them with an inert modern facsimile so they look fully authentic.
Information for 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 shipping costs.
Please be aware that these vintage
instruments have been in long-term storage. However, at regular intervals
they were removed and tested and whilst the cases are remarkably tough they can
show some signs of wear and tear. Typically it is nothing serious, mostly just scratches,
scuff marks and paint chips but the metalwork is sound and they are in good
working order. We also have a limited number of GRADE B models in stock -- see drop-down menu on Add To Cart button. These
have slightly more battered cases – deeper scratches and the odd dink etc -- but
again, they are fully functional.
Custom CD V-700, Limited Collectors Edition, £225.00
Attention CD V-700 fans, we have set aside a small
number of this classic cold war Geiger Counter for a very special paint job. They have been stripped back
to bare metal, given a tough undercoat and finished in authentic deep matt
camouflage colours and CDV livery, so your instrument won’t be seen the next
time you're prospecting in the park or detecting in the dark.
While we were
preparing the Cammo CDV we had a brilliant idea… Why not other colours? So, if
you have an insatiable urge for a green Geiger with a pink probe, or your life
simply isn’t complete without a ruby red radiation monitor, then SEND US AN
EMAIL and we’ll see what we can do. Please note that special colour schemes may
cost a little more and take longer to prepare.

Smart Geiger FSG-001 Smartphone Radiation Monitor, £28.00
inc. UK p&p
Never leave home without it - now with FREE keyring holder
your Android* Smartphone or iPhone* into a personal radiation monitor with this
tiny (10 x 30mm) detector module. All you have to do is pop it into the
earphone socket – it is powered by your phone – and you can start taking
readings using free apps -- see screenshots below -- from Google Play (for Android phones) or the Apple App
sub-miniature semiconductor sensor inside the Smart Geiger module is sensitive
to both Gamma and X-Ray radiation and the apps display measurements in counts
per minute (CPM) and microsieverts per hour (uSv/h); it can operate
continuously, or take readings over a preset period (3, 5, 10 or 30 minutes).
On some models of smartphone there is also the option of an audio output
(click) and/or the screen will flash when an event is detected. The information
shown by the companion apps also varies according to the make/model of phone
and operating system – search Google Play and Apple App Store for ‘Smart
Geiger’ for more details.
at this point we would dearly like to go into more details about performance
sensitivity and accuracy but thanks to the significant technical differences
between the numerous smartphones and operating system versions on the market
there can be large variations in readings between the various makes and models.
In other words Smart Geiger is not going to transform your smartphone into a
serious scientific instrument, capable of taking accurate measurements, but it
can give you a general indication of local conditions, it responds well to
‘lively’ sources, like old watches and clocks with radium painted dials, and it
can alert you to a significant increase over and above normal background
note that whilst Smart Geiger’s radiation monitoring functions work on most
recent Android smartphones and iPhones, not all secondary functions are
supported. In particular the audio output may not be available on models that
treat the module as a headphone and automatically mute the sound output through
the handset’s built-in speaker. We are in the process of compiling a list of
models that we have tested it with, so if you are unsure, please ask before
Here are some numbers
App Display parameters: uSv/hr, CPM, Count, Timer
Count mode/timer: Continuous, 3, 5, 10 or 30
Auto calibration: typically less than 1
Additional functions: audio click,
screen flash, screen capture(depends on model)
Measuring range: 0.1 – 200uSv/hr, 1 – 9999 CPM

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

pressure valve, to protect the contents against pressure changes (e.g. when carried in an aircraft hold).
Although the GMC 300E Plus is
capable of detecting normal - and abnormally - high levels of radioactivity,
this outfit is not intended for use in safety-critical and/or health &
safety applications. Any concerns
regarding sources of potentially hazardous radioactive substances should be
reported immediately to the Health Protection Agency or Environmental Health
Department of your local authority.
PDRM 82 Portable Dose Rate Meter, now £35.99 inc. UK p&p
(New low price, due to some wear & tear on boxes)
Here’s another relic from the Cold War, and this time it’s
British. This is the Plessey PDRM 82 Portable Dose Rate Meter, issued to armed
forces, emergency services and Civil Defence personnel in the 1980s. Straight
away we have to say that the likelihood of it ever registering anything on the
4-digit LCD display is very small, and if it does, congratulations! You’ve just
survived a nuclear blast.
The PDRM-82 registers exposure to
radioactivity (in terms of absorbed dose) in Centigrays/hour, and that’s a lot
of radioactivity. In other words it’s designed to measure dangerously high
levels but don’t let that put you off. It’s an interesting and very well built
piece of kit. For its time this was a very sophisticated design.
It is microprocessor controlled,
hardened against Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) and it runs for up to 400 hours on
three standard 1.5 volt C cells. It is housed in a tough, waterproof bright
orange case with just one simple control On-Test/Off.
It may not
do much in its natural state but there is plenty of scope for experimenters to
tinker, and maybe juice it up. For anyone that is interested, we’ve managed to
get readings on the display from low-level sources by swapping the units Geiger
Muller sensor for one or our J32 tubes, and there is a way to convert the
LCD reading into counts per minute (CPM).
for some vital statistics. It’s very compact, almost pocket size and measures
just 170 x 140 x 55mm, the weight, excluding batteries is 400g and it comes
with a rigid carry strap, flexible lanyard, instructions and the original box.
These units are in as-new condition and we make sure they pass their internal
test prior to despatch.
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
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
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.

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

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.

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.
