Today I received a parcel with STS-5 G-M tubes and some additional (gratis): BOI-33, BOB-33A & DOB-50 for tests.
Now I'm going to test every tube to be sure that you will receive a good one.
Parcel with all the parts is here! (22.09.2011)

Yes, good news and the front page phot is great.

One question, as photos can be misleading, how small (or big) are those tubes ?

My guess is they are about the size of a ball point pen ?
[Edit] I found a YouTube video, actually they are quite small about the size of a pinky finger (that's what we Ameriocan's call the smallest finger).[/edit]

Hint, add some common object to photo for size comparrison.

OK, Kool. Thanks

That is 4 inches for us backwards American's, an inch longer than my finger, depending on which finger I measured.
