Greetings from SW England, UK!

Post by gravelmonkey » 18 Feb 2020, 03:07

Hi Everyone,

I've lurked in these forums on and off for a while now, decided to register as I've some questions about my PDS-100G.

I've also a vintage (80's?) ex-RAF contamination scintillation meter, which I'll post about in the coming days. I've never found any mention of the model online despite exhaustive googling. Last calibration paperwork suggests it was originally used at RAF Wittering by the Royal Air Force Armament Support Unit, so I assume it was related to the nuclear arsenal that was originally based there.

Gamma spectrometry has always been an interest for me, one day, I'll have a spectrometry set up, for the time being, I enjoy my kit-built Geiger counters.

I've also got a nice SW UV lamp, but not many good samples (yet!).

I've a geology background though don't work directly with radiation, beyond K:Th:U plots generated by airborne radiometric survey.

Thank you to all the contributions from everyone on this forum!
Will

Hi and welcome to the forum..

Please observe the real name requirements in the forum rules above (assuming your real name is not gravelmonkey). A convenient place to put your real name and location is in the signature section found in the user control panel UCP. It will then appear in the footer of all your posts.

PS: There may be a slight delay before your first posts appear online, as we manually approve new members, but this will be automatic after about three posts.

Thanks

Steven

Will,

You can just write the location after your name in the signature. It's just nice for people reading the forum to know approximately where you are posting from i.e SW England, good for networking.

Welcome Will. I'm looking forward to seeing a picture of the ex-RAF contamination scintillation meter :)
