8/28/1998Larry SandersThe station was loaded with NEWNET version R35 software on 8/27/98 at 19:28Z. This software provides improved accuracy for radiation measurements in the low range. The station was re-wired with a door sensor and new voltage divider for the radiation sensor. The existing PIC battery was reading 304 volts, it was not replaced. Currently, this station only has a radiation sensor. EPA will install meteorological sensors later. All meteorological inputs will remain shorted until the meteorological sensors are installed.Station InfoData Graph
