AK and HI
Up

For those of you who have been asking, "Where is Alaska and Hawaii?  We are states, too, you know, since 1959!", then here are your maps of Alaska and Hawaii.  We are asking that if you live in Alaska or Hawaii (and especially if you are one of those who has been asking the above question), to run a Monitoring Station.  This is a volunteer, grass roots network.  If we don't do it ourselves, it's not going to get done.  All you need is a compatible Radiation Detector and the Radiation Network Software.

= Nuclear Site                 Alert Level = 3 consecutive minutes of lesser of 100 CPM or 2.5 times a Station's baseline

*Readings not Equalized means the Monitoring Stations are broadcasting the raw radiation count from their Geiger counters, without adjustment for different count rates existing between various Geiger counter designs.  For instance, models built around a "Pancake" (see Map Legend) style of Geiger-Mueller tube typically have a 3 times count rate over Standard tubed models.

There are now a total of 5 Monitoring Stations in Hawaii on our network.  The station on Maui uses the Inspector model, with its higher count rate, and gives a Total reading of Alpha, Beta, and Gamma (and X-Ray) in CPM, and it is placed where it is able to "sniff' the outside air.  The station on Kauai also operates a higher count rate, pancake-tubed model, which is mounted outdoors as well.  And 2 stations now dot the Big Island of Hawaii, operating the ultra-sensitive Inspector.

Meanwhile, we now have 3 active Monitoring Stations in Alaska.  Look for yellow circles near Anchorage, Kenai, and Sitka.  All three are now running the higher count rate, pancake-tubed models.
