    1 to 2: natural background level (good reading - shows Geiger counter is working properly)

    3 or 4: slightly above background level

    5 to 10: even at these low levels an item (e.g. watch) should not be kept next to skin for prolonged periods

    10 to 100: do not carry the item next to the skin at all

    100 to 200: do not to carry item close to your body, just handle it very occasionally

    200 to 500: best not to handle the item at all
    - 700: Geiger counter overloads and gives continuous alarm - extreme caution!
    the value there is at the rather serious level.

    The first link is dead

    The second link is fine :
    Between 20 and 22
    Background should be about 18

    Also, doesn't advise where the sensor is
    If it is inside a building it's pointless
    The sensor needs to be on the outside of the building, but it looks to be a single piece of circuitry

    This is seriously out of order
    Shops are selling Geiger Counters for 50,000 Yen / 380 / USD$620
    Surely greater priority should be given getting safe, clean water and basic food to the north of the country...

    Oh right, thats not worrying then, talking about alpha and beta waves... a few meters of air will soak all that up...

    As m8internet said, unless he's geiger counter is in a building lined with lead, that radiation is fine. ... As long as its not too far away that is, if thats outside the evac zone then they are in trouble.

    I have friends in LA who are buying the counters and wouldn't you know it they have gone up in price almost %50. This is insane, fear is the only thing that can do that.
