Hello :)

Im new here!

Im Jonathan from Zurich Region in Switzerland! I always was interested in radiation and about a year ago i startet my first experiments.
Since i work with electronics in my job, the electronic part like pcbs and circuits were never a problem :)

I have built:
- Mighty Ohm Geiger Counter Kit (and modified it later with a display)
- A self made radiation monitor
- A self made geiger counter with LND712 Tube

Recently i got a Scionix Scintillation Detector (38B 57/1.5M - E1) and currently working on a Theremino clone for gamma spectroscopy!
I also want to build a portable spectrometer

My sources of radiation are lantern mantles, welding rod, uranium glass, "health cards", lyso crystal, vacuum tubes and smoke detectors.

Hi Jonathan,

Welcome to the forum, it sounds like you have a lot in common with people here.

I am sure you will enjoy doing gamma spectrometry and good luck with the Theremino clone, and keep us posted on the progress.
