The seat-belt sign is off. You may now turn on your electronic equipment...

...including your Geiger counter.

An enterprising chap fitted a small Geiger counter to his PC, and took it on a cross-US flight, from Chicago to LA. It's an interesting graph- you can see the effect of geomagnetism on ambient radiation as you move south.

The Aware RM-70 counter is a nifty piece of equipment, and quite cheap as radiation counters go (though the RM-60 is even cheaper!)...

[You'll find lots more projects on the Aware Electronics user's page...]
