Shows clear diurnal variation, so I'm guessing that the sensor has been left where the sun shines directly on it. The sensors are temperature sensitive.

Cheers,

Al.

That sounds reasonable - I don't think the sensor gets direct sunlight(not home at the moment to check) but it's in a hot room (my garage) with four full-time crunching systems in the immediate vicinity.

I don't know, I just bought a Soeks detector and I'm getting .19 to .29 microSieverts per hour on it, indoors throughout my house, in Stanthorpe. Urban area, no industry around us, golf course opposite. Levels are supposed to be high up here due to the granite belt having, well, granite, but it would be good to get some more readings from around Brisbane/SEQ to check this.

It's just down the coast a bit from this place too :

Could be nuclear subs or trucks carrying radioactive material passing by at regular times each day. Just a thought.
Even the low points on the chart for this one are ten times what most people get for average background radiation?
