Oatley Electronics Does It Again

Very nice solid state geiger counter. I am going to get one to fob that analog output into a digital counter that I can hook up to with RS-232. I figure a PIC or a Basic II Stamp would work well for this.

They've retrofitted the military RADAC case we advertised previously up here with the kit inside it, powered by a more conventional 5 volt supply.

Hey Tex, what do you use to brush your teeth? I want to get rid of fluoride and I have been experimenting with home made toothpastes.

There are fluoride free toothpastes in most majpor supermarkets, you just have to have a good look for them. Try "Grants" brand in Coles or "Macro" in Woolworths. They are both well priced and taste good.

Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.

Yo Tex, I think these two kits may be a better value for low level radiation needed to check food and for decon. Keep the original Oatly kit for high level survey. B4
