Finnish CD radiation counter.

Old but very nice civil defense surplus Geiger counter, very robust metal construction, non calibrated but tested as working when exposed to low level radiation source. 

These were made in Finland for military and CD use, at some point most cities had large Fallout shelters full of equipment in anticipation of coming nuclear holocaust. 

The test video ( on the last pic on bottom row ) is shot while exposing the counter to some Americium ( the same substance you have in smoke detector, but it is not safe to dismantle a smoke detector, we are using a school-laboratory test rod instead ) resulting a peak of 1 milliröntgen/hour = 10 microsieverts/hour, the low detection threshold seems to work, we are definitely not going to to look out anything to test the more serious röntgen/hour setting, and it is not recommended to search such material or place. 


Features

A push button light for the dial

Switch for the loudspeaker ( it is not always safe to make a sound )

A main switch for EI = OFF, TARK = Batt. Check, MR/H or R/H measurement. 

Runs on two D-cells ( not included )

Shoulder strap

Side switch for Beta/Gamma or Gamma radiation. 

Made to survive a nuclear war, very hard to break.
