Amateur radiation detection and experimentation

Fig 1 Airplane
Chris Smolinski of Black Cat Systems has an article on The Citizen Scientist detailing some of the experiments with his GM-10 and GM-45 geiger counter radiation detectors. I use(d) one of these on planes to detect the different levels of radiation as we flew higher or lower, fun stuff… – Link.
