    I would think that it would be tough to calibrate a geiger counter and the ones you see on line for sale are not. I would think the lapel meters would be an affordable choice. Or you could buy uranium on amazon and calibrate your geiger counter.

    Yeah a geiger would be a useful tool. Radiation is fickle stuff, a worst-case scenario is if we hightailed it away from a nuke plant that was blowing its top near our home, only for the radiation to catch up with us a thousand miles away. This is the Chernobyl "devil's footprint" stomping Europe and shows that some spots close to the plant were hit less than some places much further away, depending how the wind swirled the radioactive muck around, and where the rain randomly washed it out of the sky-




    A simple geiger counter like this would help us decide whether to stay in a certain location or get out-



    If we hadn't got a geiger, the dying vegetation would give us a hint that a spot is hot as hell, this pic is from the Chernobyl 'forbidden zone'-





    This is Fukushima letting go, demonstrating that radioactive clouds might well sail harmlessly over our heads on the wind, eventually coming to earth and zapping poor slobs hundreds of miles away-





    Some people have returned to the Chernobyl polluted zone, this is a 2011 news item-
