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.

8/24/1998Larry SandersThe station was loaded with NEWNET version R35 software on 8/21/98 at 00:15Z. 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. A new 12 volt battery was be installed. The PIC 300volt battery is low (285volts), a new 300volt battery will be installed by EPA when the next shipment is received. 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
