Windows only. Here is a zip file with the extra files and instructions to make it work. The 2 important things are:
1. Determining the com port it's working on. There are instructions included to explain how to get that info.
2. You must manually open the com port to the device using the GQGMCounterPRO.exe application first and any time the computer reboots. After a reboot the com port may change. The radioactive@home project application cannot be running when you try to manually open the com port. It's easiest to just shut down boinc, open the port, then start boinc again.

I'd set the WU run time to 1 hour to begin with. If after a few WUs, they still score 0 credit it's most likely the com port in not correct or com port was not opened first

Hi everyone,
There is any possible to get a detector? I want to be a part of Radioactive@Home team but it is hard to get it. I checking forum but I see that this project is dead.

You can use a GMC-300 on Windows. See this post...

@scole
but why not getting any credits with the GMC-300 sensor? http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/results.php?hostid=41946

It looks like the com port either didn't get successfully opened or got closed. Looking at the Task details, it shows...


Stderr output

If your computer restarts, the com port will need to be manually re-opened again. Regardless of the reason, try going through the steps to manually open the com port again. The Boinc client must be shut down to do this. The GQGMCounterPRO.exe program cannot open the com port while the Radioactive@Home app is running in BOINC.

Hello, I decided to buy this sensor on Amazon.de

https://www.amazon.de/-/cs/gp/product/B00IN8TJYY/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I ordered the sensor on March 28, 2021 and it was delivered to me on March 30, 2021. Today I connected the sensor to a PC with Win10 64bit. First, I downloaded USB drivers and GMC DataViewer from the manufacturer's website to detect the correct COM port. The connection of the sensor to the PC itself was without a problem and after a while the first task in BOINC started to be processed.


Unfortunately, it's not working ...

Too bad this sensor doesn't work with this project. However, it works seamlessly with the online map maintained by the manufacturer of this sensor at https://www.gmcmap.com/. This page has a map of many sensors around the world, and some have the ability to display measured radiation values.
It is a great pity that it is not possible to modify the project software so that it also works with sensors that are commonly available on the market.

But it does. See this thread...http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/forum_thread.php?id=559#3971

Download and unzip the contents onto your computer. Follow the Radioactive_GMC300E_readme.pdf guide. Worked for me.
