At 4:05 p.m. CST today Monday March 5, 2018 I changed my outside HEPA radiation monitoring station filter.

Please expect a slight elevation in radiation detection as a result due to this increased airflow.

Today I woke up to an audio alarm that my station has elevated radiation levels. I then noticed that my outside radiation monitoring station and the St. Charles Illinois outside station (independent station - 70 miles away) are both showing elevated levels of radiation detected. Here is a screen capture showing both stations and their status: https://ibb.co/bw9YOS

While doing research today looking for a source of the radiation, I have not yet been able to find anything that stands out to me. Our nearest nuclear plant is the Byron plant but I'm unaware of any reactor outages there currently. I'll update later if I have more information.

Let me add that while these levels are obviously elevated, these levels would not be considered a nuclear emergency.
