Welcome to the Radiation Network, operated by Mineralab. A brief
After 9/11/2001, we recognized a need for continuous Radiation monitoring on
behalf of the general public, and conceived of this idea of linking together
Geiger counters from around the nation, and the world, to create a real time,
early warning system of radioactive danger. This is truly a grass roots
network, comprised of regular folks like you and me, who have their own Geiger
counters which they operate out of their homes and offices.
The Radiation Network has no affiliation with the Government, nor are we funded
by the Government - rather privately, so we are completely independent of any
Government influence. Having said that, and given the sensitive nature of our
activity, we pride ourselves in operating this network responsibly. At its
core, the Radiation readings from our contributing Monitoring Stations
constitute original, first hand knowledge, while their real time component adds
transparency - to give legitimacy to our efforts. We are neither skeptics nor
alarmists, but operate with a probing open mind, guided by the principles of
science and evidence, along with the experience, history, and reality of genuine
radioactive danger in our world.
Since our start in 2004, other networks have flattered us with their own
renditions of the concept, but what makes the Radiation Network unique is that
we are an equal opportunity provider, i.e we accept most any Geiger counter
model, not just our own brand, and because our Monitoring Stations operate
Geiger counters that are like the devices any of us might choose for our own
personal protection, the Radiation levels detected and the readings reported by
our network are relate-able.
Thank you for your support of the Radiation Network. If you are not already a
contributing Monitoring Station, but are interested, please contact us.
