Monitoring Gamma Radiation

The Neighborhood Environmental Watch Network, known as NEWNET, is able to give early indications of increases in radiation due to radioactive particulates in the air.

5/7/2001Stan ReadCorrection to previous comment. The station was restarted on May 3.Station InfoData Graph
5/7/2001Stan ReadThe station was powered down and restarted May 1, 2001 by Carol Linkswiler of ADEC. It restarted with the correct broadcast time (01:12:06) but subsequent broadcasts have been at XX:11:37 for an unknown reason.Station InfoData Graph

2/21/2001Connon OdomThe Gamma radiation reading abruptly returned to normal (5 µR/Hr) at 0642Z on 19 Feb. The reading had jumped to 50 µR/Hr on 24 Jan.Station InfoData Graph
1/25/2001Connon OdomThe Gamma radiation reading abruptly jumped from 5 µR/Hr to 50 µR/Hr at 2354Z on 24 Jan.Station InfoData Graph
1/16/2001Connon OdomThe 0512Z transmission on 13 Jan 01 was not received.Station InfoData Graph
1/12/2001Connon OdomToday's 0112Z tranmsission was not received. beginning with the 0512Z transmission only Gamma radiation and BaroP data are valid. Today's 40.0 µR/Hr Gamma radiation spike at 1927Z is invalid. It was caused by a rare type of data conversion error. The data value was transmitted as positive (high range) instead of negative (low range). Station InfoData Graph
