Is the EPA having technical difficulties? No readings since early yesterday 3/24 morning?
I am sure the CPM have spiked and they have turned them off yet again.
I need to purchase my own Geiger but can't afford it right now as I am unemployed.

While the GMC-200 from GQ Electronics is not the best geiger counter out there (it has no display) it does work great on NETC. It is also a low cost $85 fully built geiger counter. I own many of them, one of them has been outside (South Beloit, Illinois) running 24/7 for a full year now in a ziplock bag on an air purifier for better detection rates. Using the FREE NETC Windows software and the GMC-200 you can have a station up and running for less than $100. 8-)

If interested, here is the link to buy a GMC-200

Thanks KC!
Any idea why Netc is not connecting with EPA to obtain current readings? EPA site, when I do a query, gives me "A system error occured. Please try again or contact the helpdesk."
WTF?

Did you try from the EPA RADNET too?

I assume this is the link you were talking about?

https://cdxnode64.epa.gov/radnet-public/query.do

:!: It seems that the EPA RADNET site is down so NETC can't get any data until the EPA RADNET site comes back online to give us the updates.

Yes, I used the query function.
It figures it's down, they are hiding higher readings once again.

IMO

That's not necessarily true, T.
From what I have seen, here and there, with supposed budgetary cutbacks due to revenue shortfalls, the gubment agencies are prone to cutting any services that are actually valuable to the general public, furlough and discharge of many of the lowest paid individuals on staff, all to protect those at the highest salary levels within the agencies.

Example?
They close libraries...
They lock gates to beach parks.

:arrow: I have seen it happen too many time at just the right time and when they return there are gaps in the time for monitoring. Lets not forget how they were down during the main Fukushima plume, but said everything was fine.

I should strip the audio from the video above and make it my radiation stations alert/audio file. :lol:

Makes me sick to hear outright blatant lie after lie. That audio would be a great alert!
I am ready to retire from the internet and just live in the now.
I think the stress and worry is going to kill me before the radiation.
Any thoughts on where I can direct non believers? To let them know why
I am bugging out to live life?
99% of the humans on this planet are oblivious.
I already lost my 29 year old nephew to cancer last year.
He was healthy as healthy could be. Took him in 6 months.

I am just waiting to hear which family/friend it will strike next. They
all believe nothing is happening, some friends didn't even know Fuku happened.

My wife thinks I'm a big conspiracy nut! Hah! Makes me laugh, we argue about
This stuff all the time.
Oh well, what can I do, I'm only one person. I am close to God and thank Him
I wake up everyday!
