Hi,
We've just set up a Raspberry Pi monitor but are not receiving any readings. We've set it up so it's a wired connection, not wireless; Could this be the reason there's no reading?
Thanks, Wendy in Petaluma CA

Thanks EB789320, I do believe you helped answer my questions. After taking another look at the map, it appears that private sites with id's starting with 1 typically have double digit readings, like in the twenties, while EPA sites, with ids starting with 5, typically have reading in the hundreds.

This kind of makes sense, because the sensitivity of a detector affects the number of counts per minute, so EPA detectors must be about an order of magnitude more sensitive than what most consumers can afford. I also visited the EPA RadNet website showing the monitoring stations which was kind of interesting.

The youtube video that used the netc map and claimed that the Billings MT reading of 600 was proof we were getting fallout from a unit 4 fire, didn't mention that this number was actually really close to that stations 30 day average. It caught my attention because I used to live near there.

Thanks again!

That is correct. All of the NETC private stations 1: use geiger counters and the EPA Radnet system 4: & 5: use scintillation counters. Normal background counts per minute are extremely different between both.
