AK and HI
Up

For those of you who have been asking, "Where is Alaska and Hawaii?  We are states, too, you know, since 1959!", then here are your maps of Alaska and Hawaii.  We are asking that if you live in Alaska or Hawaii (and especially if you are one of those who has been asking the above question), to run a Monitoring Station.  This is a volunteer, grass roots network.  If we don't do it ourselves, it's not going to get done.  All you need is a compatible Radiation Detector and the Radiation Network Software.

Our stations in Hawaii include a fairly regular contributor form the Big Island, as well as occasional reporting stations on Maui and Kauai.

= Nuclear Site                 Alert Level = 3 consecutive minutes of lesser of 100 CPM or 2.5 times a Station's baseline

*Readings not Equalized means the Monitoring Stations are broadcasting the raw radiation count from their Geiger counters, without adjustment for different count rates existing between various Geiger counter designs.  For instance, models built around a "Pancake" (see Map Legend) style of Geiger-Mueller tube typically have a 3 times count rate over Standard tubed models.

In Alaska, we have multiple stations reporting from the Anchorage and Sitka regions.
