Re: GEIGERBOT for Iphone

I had a chance to test geiger bot with one of the newer iPad Pros while in Vancouver on Friday and I can confirm that Geigerbot works provided you have a USB-C audio input cable plugged in before you start the program. The only issue I saw with this program is the lack of updated screen orientation....

Re: FYI! Americium Sourse from Smoke Detector

Those Am241 ion chambers are legal as they are sold as a sealed Ion Chamber source. They meet the requirements for international shipping and are both legal in Canada and the US. If these chambers had their sources removed and the sources sold by themselves, this would constitute a breach of NRC and...

Hmm, maybe...

Very nice find! Sometimes older laptops are just better. I find this with Apple's 2009-2010 MacBook Pro lineup as well.

Re: Torbernite (Natural Uranium)

Here is a sample NORM spectrum from my iRad rebuilt Sionix detector of Uraninite. Btw, we have a few places here in BC that are hotspots for Torbernite, Autunite, Uranophane... I'm going on a Uranium and rare-earth mineral hunting journey at some point this summer. Intend on getting get lots of samp...

Re: Smoke Alarm - Americium 241

I find with my tiny CsI/Na detector that I can see the lowest energies very well for Am241. Visible when the right voltage setting ~1310V for the smaller tube, shows the lower energy 13.92KeV, 17.8KeV and 26.5KeV gamma peaks quite well.. I am however unable to see those energies below 20KeV well wit...

Re: GEIGERBOT for Iphone

No this is a whole different thing, that the app did not work anymore is quite normal since ios 12 changed a lot on security and permission stuff. I know that this changed since i am a ios developer myself, if you dont have a text line in one of the Plists with the reason why your app needs microph...

Re: USB external sound cards

It would be possible... this evaluation board uses twin microcontrollers to interface with the ADC. Point of clarification, This was not my board, it's worth a fair price and it was being used to trial the AKM branded chip for ultrasonic recording. Bat recording for a PHD project. USB to serial brid...

Re: GEIGERBOT for Iphone

What you have just experienced is the whole issue with iOS and app permissions for accessing hardware. Wiping/ reinstalling the phone / re-installing from backup brings back the permissions which quite frankly shouldn't happen and wastes everyone's time. This was suggested in the Apple community for...

Re: Theremino MCA or Beqmoni ?

Actually I used PRA to do this back in the beginning of May / late April to teach an IB Physics 12 class basic Gamma Spectroscopy. I had a bunch of labeled isotopes (labels covered so no cheating) and some unknowns High value points scattered around the campus. The students had to use survey meters ...
