Hi guys

I wrote a short "get started" guide for BeqiMoni in the old forum, have a read!

Karl,

I know Becqmoni is one of your favourite programs, and you have more experience using it than most people, especially when it comes to the section where you measure activity in a sample.
It would be very useful if you made a screen recording, demonstrating the setup, calibration and essential features of the program.

Please give it some consideration.

Another good thing with BeqMoni, apart from that it is free, is that it doesn't install on your computer -you just run it. This also means (and I recommend this) you can have several copies going. I have several going, on that I used only for the detector I used for activity quantification. For playing around/testing, I use another copy of the software and in this way I don't risk messing up anything important.

As I understand it, the old post does not work any longer.

Due to questions recieved on how to setup BM, I just post a screenshot of my settings here, to be vieiwed as a starting point. These settings need to be fine-tuned to your system, and will depend on (at least) on:
*Noise of your PMT
* Noise of your sound card
* What your detector actually can see (for a standard NaI detector, it should be no problem to see down to 20 keV or so, if noise levels are good)
