I too noticed your Noticeably/Significant-Increased readings that were concentrated in the Illinois and neighboring states for the last few days (but subsiding now). Something extra was sure enough going on ... In My Opinion.

Here in Montrose, CO, USA there were 3 noticeable nights of elevated readings; however nothing like what you experienced ... that I cannot exclusively explain.

Look at my Montrose, CO, USA Chart.

My suspicion for my night-time increase was/is Cosmic related ... I use/reference the following two links:

https://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/ace- ... solar-wind

https://iswa.ccmc.gsfc.nasa.gov/IswaSystemWebApp/
In this link: Click the "Magnetosphere" TAB, and the number "9" BUTTON ... I look at (or click on) the 1st Three Images: 1. MagnetoPause Position, 2. Solar Wind Velocity, and 3. Magnetic Field Lines. It takes a bit of getting use to but click the video-looking-button in the bottom-right corner of any of the 3; then choose advanced and put the number 200 in to the "Number of Frames". Everything is in UTC Time.

Just Something Else to Consider,

Farley

These recent elevated radiation readings have caused me some concern to the possible source. I greatly appreciate your suggestions as to the possible source.

Once I noticed the elevated levels, I started looking at the NRC Reactor Status reports to see if there was any nuclear plant refueling or accidents nearby me, but I was unable to find anything.

Below is a graph of my last two month 1-hour average chart. If anyone wants a more detailed report/graph of my data or other stations graphs, please subscribe for access to that. It is only $19.95 per year and that financial support covers server, programmer & bandwidth costs.

As I research more for the source of my elevated reading, the California wildfires are an obvious source. The fires will transfer the Fukushima fallout from place to place through the smoke.

Speaking of the fires and smoke, the U.S. AirNow map is good to look at which shows what the government is reporting the air quality to be on any given day. https://www.airnow.gov/

My last station filter change was on the 15th of July so my levels right now are slightly lower than what they would normally be with a good filter.

Today the electric company came out to service my meter.

As a result, my service was disconnected for a short period of time and is reflected clearly in my graph.

I'm 8 days late replacing my outside radiation monitoring stations HEPA filter, but I'm showing elevated readings. I believe this is due to all the fall burning that is being done, fall clean-up.

You can see the past two weeks here in this screen capture: https://ibb.co/b4XNMV

My normal daytime range is between 15 & 32 CPM but with the burning around the area it has been elevated and I'm going to wait for it to go down before I replace it with a new HEPA filter.
