I just replaced my outside filter, 2:30 p.m. CST October 12, 2017.

I have had some elevated reading already this week prior to replacing the filter so I expect some early reading elevated as much or higher than pictured here.

Late Sunday evening to Monday afternoon I detected above normal radiation readings with my outside radiation monitoring station. While there is no question that these elevated radiation levels are real, I have concluded that it is a result of all the leaf burning happening. The smoke helps transport the radiation. Outside for miles around, I can smell the leaf burning and also see the haze in the sky. As evening comes, the upper atmosphere comes down bringing with it more of this (radiation filled) smoke. Our children will stay inside with our in house HEPA air purification systems running.

Today I have been seeing elevated radiation levels reported by my outside 24/7 radiation monitoring station. Looking at the NETC map (which include EPA RadNet radiation monitoring stations) the radiation appears to be traveling with the smoke from the recent fires in California. We will be staying inside during these elevated readings.

Using the governments current AirNow website, it too seems to confirm what I suspected for my area of Northern Illinois.

I've been so busy since the last recorded filter change on November 14th, I failed to change my filter on time. Today I just noticed that I failed to replace my outside radiation monitoring stations HEPA filter within my preset 30 day timeline, so I replaced it today.

I replaced my filter today: Sunday December 31st at 9:12 a.m. CST

:arrow: For anyone that digs through my chart minute by minute, the filter was removed at 9:12 a.m. CST and replaced by 9:21 a.m. CST

While looking at my previous chart, before the most recent filter change, I notice an elevated reading on December 18th. Screen shot of the reading can be seen here: https://s14.postimg.org/x4mevc1gh/Screenshot_2017-12-31_at_9.45.51_AM-min.png

I find that high reading interesting because with such an old restricted filter, I wouldn't expect a reading that high. I can only assume that had I changed the filter on the correct day, that reading would have been much higher.

At 12:20 p.m. CST today Saturday February 3,2016 I changed my outside HEPA radiation monitoring station filter.

Please expect a slight elevation in detection as a result.

I'd like to point out that even though I live in Northern Illinois, we are downwind of the Handford Nuclear Waste Plant with the jet stream and I have previously successfully traced radioactive detection from the West Coast to my backyard. Having said that, I must note here what I've been watching for a possible source of radiation. Please watch this (12/11/2017) Hanford Nuclear Waste Plant promotional video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lL9QXOihppc&feature=youtu.be

Now please watch this (01/12/2018) video talking about the stop of work of the previously mentioned work at the site, due to radioactive particles being detected outside of the site. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmYyly7lSt4

Here is a screen shot from the Handford Plutonium Finishing Plant demolition video.

You can see them using water a water cannon in an attempt to reduce the amount of radioactive dust from leaving the area. I'll post it here just in case the official video is removed due to the recent detection of radioactive particles discovered outside the facility.
