My name is Aaron Morris and I'm the main technical person at RSSI, a small health physics consulting company in Morton Grove, IL. (Also the QA Officer, certified radon measurement professional for a number of jurisdictions, and a host of other titles besides (we're a small company).) In general, I'm responsible for our high-resolution gamma spectroscopy system as well as most day-to-day survey meter calibrations, though I also do low-background proportional alpha/beta counting when I get the chance to handle samples. We're an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited lab for all our lab and calibration work.

I stumbled across this site when looking for a manual for an instrument I'd seen before but now under a new manufacturer. We maintain a rather extensive library of manuals, which I've just decided this summer to start reconciling paper and digital versions (I'm currently in the "C" manufacturers). That said, if anyone needs a manual, feel free to reach out and I'll see if we've got one. (And to be clear, I have no issue sharing them; it's not contingent on using us as a lab or anything like that.)

Welcome to the forum, great to have you on board. Your experience and library of manuals will come in handy for sure.

I recently set up a dedicated forum for old and new manuals here: viewforum.php?f=24

Not much in it yet, but hopefully it will develop over time.

Looking forward to your input.
