For those that are concerned.

A few hours ago, I saw a real high number in the California region, but it was removed minutes later and it showed normal readings. When I saw it, it was at 235! The site tells you not to panic when you see a sudden spike, they could be testing something....

I wish we could get a site showing worldwide radiation levels. I just want to see a comprehensive schematic so we can really get a good comparison. I hope someone will take the reins on this one.

Here is a screen cap of the blackcat reading from Socal detector. as of 7:15pm est. While there may be a test going on, note that none, i repeat NONE of the other detectors have HUGE spikes this this one. We will have to see if Denver has a similar reading soon as it looks like it is heading there next.

here is the actual image

check it out

Here is another site that was recently posted on another thread:

www.radiationnetwork.com...

For some reason, it shows slightly higher readings. I'm not sure if it's due to more sensitive equipment.

Nevermind amateur rad reporting, go directly to the science:

www.epa.gov...

Requires a modicum of technical skill, and registration, but this is the data you want to pay attention to.

Beta and Gamma are two different types of radiation with different levels of penetration and different effects. So, Beta radiation was constant and Gamma fluctuated? Good thing since Gamma is "wave" thus travels straight line, but Beta (and Alpha) are particulates and propagate with the wind.

There happens to be a fairly large supply of outdated units recently dumped on the war-surplus market by the US Government. (Maybe they have upgraded their own supply.) I have seen untested AS Is units advertised for as little as $50 including tax & shipping; tested units can be had for $60 including tax & shipping. Last night, I ordered 3 untested units, and the total with tax & shipping (UPS ground from PA to WA) is just $96.50. After I test them, assuming they all work, I expect to resell two and maybe end up get my initial investment back in full. I'll let you know if and when I get them (hopefully in a week).

Regardless of the outcome, the present crisis is sure to generate a spike in sales of radiation detectors. Supply and demand will send the prices sky high until the supply catches up. Then, just like GPS units, you can expect the market to be flooded with modern more sophisticated models, and prices will eventually go down. Some of the new models will be small enough to carry in a pocket. There's even one included in a wristwatch. (Hopefully, it doesn't have a radium dial; tisk.)

I saw the 235 in Ca too. Took a picture. A few minutes later that site in Ca was offline. When it came back on a little bit later it was reading 9. I thought it might be a fluke too, but now I don't know.

Maybe somebody walked thru the room carrying a radioactive rock or an old clock with a radium dial. These are just private citizens with detectors plugged into their computers; there is no professional quality control. If there were a radioactive cloud moving across the city, it would eventually reach another detector. But for now, the detectors are so few and far between that such spikes should only be taken seriously by the guy in charge of the site. If you get a spike on your own detector, you should try to find the source; odds are it's local.

True, I've been seeing a lot of inconsistent numbers, so not letting myself take it too seriously. I can imagine that if a cloud of it was moving through, we'd be seeing alarming numbers across the board. Plus I don't know what types of rad detectors are being used on the CDX, so I'm just going to hope all those high numbers are due to background rad and other elements. Thanks!

Another thread on this board is about radiation spikes in Driggs, ID. Here's my response.
