Message 2868 - Posted: 6 Aug 2014 | 17:14:41 UTC

I am a new counting participant. I am looking for a detector to be able to participate in the science being done here. How can i obtain a detector? I see that all the new models are sold out. How can someone joining the team get one? Can they be made or purchased else where or from the project itself? Any information would greatly be appreciated.

I very much want to participate in this project but with out some input from other members i will have to move on to a project who with respond and help me participate. Please respond or give me some direction please.

Detectors are available only when Szopler announce it - he do it when he have spare time only...

From commercial market GMC-300 works as well.

Does the GMC-300 have a usb port to attach to the computer for computing or how is that done to be able to participate in the project?

Also can you use the GMC-320 or the GMC-300E or the GMC-300E plus? I would prefer to use the GMC-320E plus if i can but i don't know how the setup is required for the project.

Yep,
I would like to contribute too, but it seems the last batch of detectors was produced more than 2 years ago... wasn't it?
And there is no clue here about how to adapt a commercial GMC-300 to the project.
I would love to mark the first dot in the map to Manhattan, where I live but I guess I will have to wait.

No, last KIT's are currently in sending process to buyers :)

Also, the GMC-300 just works with project :)

Hi Krzysztof,
may I request one today?
could you please send us a link to request a detector to radioactive@home? Or a contact of a person to request?
I can not find it in the website.

Thanks!
Yacob

The best person to ask about kit is Szopler

Good afternoon, would also like to participate in the project and must purchase the sensor, have any specific date for when the detectors will be sold? remembering that apparent mind I am the first to be interested in the project in Latin America, I live in Brazil and I believe that my input will help recruit new menbros for the project.

Att, Wesley Jackson

Hi. I was wondering if this project supports the MightyOhm geiger counter ? It's one of the most popular and easy to use Geiger counter kits out there. I'd like to join the project and this is the device I am using.

Hi. That detector looks pretty easy to make, and is not a bad price. This project doesn't support that counter, but another open project likely does: http://Radmon.org. They support several kit/homemade sensors, including this one. The MightyOhm serial data will be supported in the next release, and the pulse output (connected to an audio input of your PC/laptop/RPi) is supported now.

Is this kit really not usable ? I can´t see much difference with our 2.61... doesn´t support the counter ? Is it possible to modify it ???

All the sensors in this project require the BOINC client, which will not perform Work Units without the sensor. Sensor data can only be submitted through the BOINC client. The R@H software that is downloaded through BOINC to the client makes USB requests to the sensor for a "feature report" to obtain the data, so another non-project sensor would have to produce this same 'feature report' to work, and would have to enumerate the same as a project sensor. Since it's open source, the firmware can be ported to another microcontroller, but I don't think anyone has actually done this and it seems like alot of work. The developers make no claim that other off-the-shelf sensors work (at least as far as I've read; I've read through most is this site but not everything). It's also possible for the R@H software to be modified to accept other sensor's data, but only the developers can answer for that direction.

My v2.61 sensor works except for enumeration, so my BOINC client can't see it, and so it can't be on this map. But the serial output is fine, so I am able to show it on the 'partner' site map Radmon.org. At least I'm on one map. Most sensors here are on both.

Actually, I now see one commercial sensor has been used for this project by a few users (gmc-300E). See http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/forum_thread.php?id=160&nowrap=true#3193. There seems to be no clear information how to use it here, and the web site for the sensor refers to another map, http://gmcmap.com.

How ca I use the GMC300 with the project? I own one but did not manage to communicate with BOINC.

Thanks

OK, folks I'm giving up on this project.

I know, the devs are spending their free time and are not paid for the project but this here is rediculous! A complete and utter waste of time.

Weeks for weeks absolutely no response to key questions . Yeah, I know, you are all so busy but the truth is, there is a lack of interest and dedication because regardless how busy you are, there would always be these 30 minutes every two weeks where you could check the forum and answer the few new posts.

That said, I'm out.

Yes Holger... this project is not very frequented... you need much patience :)
There was a discussion over this sensor... maybe you find answers there:
