PDRM 82 FIXED/SHELTER DOSE RATE METER. SUPER RARE!
£225.00, including UK shipping.
Plessey made several variants of the PDRM 82 for the Military and Civil Defence. It's the classic British Cold War Portable Doserate Meter, but this has to be one of the rarest examples. It was designed for fixed installations, inside nuclear bunkers, laboratories and so on. The basic unit has been modified to use an external probe (detector unit), connected by a 10-metre cable, which means it can monitor radiation levels remotely, outside a bunker, for example, in the aftermath of a nuclear detonation.
You’ll find everything you need to know about the basic PDRM 82 in the item listing, just click HERE. The key extra components are the Plessey 611/09653 Radiation Detector Unit and the 10M cable, terminated with screw-fit TNC connectors. The detector unit has been designed to mount on a mast, the brackets are not included but as you can see it is a simple design and once can be easily fabricated from wood or metal. It comes with the original instruction leaflet and fitted transportation. The unit operates using 3 widely available 1.5volt ‘C’ cells
It’s a genuine collector’s item, we’ve only ever seen one – and this is it – so we doubt we will ever see another one. Don’t miss out; when it’s gone, it’s gone!

However, please note that the Geiger tube it uses has been deliberately configured to only respond to dangerously high levels of radioactivity so you are very unlikely to see the digits on the display do very much this side of atomic Armageddon...
