CORRECTED -SACRAMENTO--RADIATION HAS JUMPED FROM 42-769 CPM -15 TIMES NORMAL For the first time since Fukashima I have personal knowledge that radiation levels have finally become significantly elevated.
I live in Sacramento CA and I have been monitoring local radiation every
since Fukushima. Basically, the background radiation has not changed. I
monitor in my home and the car filter in my car. I have done it annually.
The background radiation (gamma) has been: Mean: 42.56 cpm StdDev 7.07,
Min:24 Max 63.0. These reading were gathered on 11/22/2013. My wife told
me that Drudge had an article on elevated beta levels in San Diegs. I said
that is relatively insignificant and most reports have been consistently
wrong since Fukashima. However, I turned on a GM-45 counter from
blackcatsystems.com. You can go to their site to get the specs on this
Todays readings were: 769.7 cpm StdDev:24.76 Min 706 Max 804 of GAMMA
radiation (not beta or alpha) Gamma radiation is hard to shield from.
Steve, this is a very big deal. It has jumped from normal background
levels of 42 to 769, about 15 times normal. For the first time since
Fukashima I have personal knowledge that radiation levels have finally
become significantly elevated. I plan to monitor weekly. If I see
additional elevated levels above this, I will inform you. This is a major
