Greetings from Germany!

Post by Cosmic » 09 Oct 2019, 17:14

Hello,

I am Stefan, I live in Southern Germany aka Bavaria.
Concerning radiation I am a hobbyist and simply want to know how the world around us works.
Some years ago I bought my first geiger counter, I can't remember what the trigger was but more followed, and finally a few weeks ago ... I got a GS-USB-PRO.
Radiation from the Chernobyl accident 30 years ago is still present here and one of my goals is to detect and measure contamination in food.

Hello Stefan,

Welcome to the forum, not sure if I should wish for you to find Chernobyl contamination in food ??

Anyhow for very low levels of activity you will need a good shield, so check out the forum on shielding ;)

Hi Steven,

this is just something I want to try. And as always in science, a negative result is a result, too.
Maybe I can get my hands on a hot, tested sample of boar (not sure this is the correct word) from a hunter.

Shielding: I already surfed the forum, now I'm trying to find a source for pewter sheets, seems there is no source in D and I have to order it from GB.
Stefan
