Now in Japan,Geiger counter is in a serious demand.
Because of the “social pressure”, which is a beautiful custom of Japanese, the only “right” Geiger counter is supposed to be the ones of “Horiba”.
Ministry of science made a bunch of orders to Horiba and all the authorities are supposed to use the brand though it only detects gamma ray.
By the way, Yamamoto Taro, one of the most famous anti-nuc actor was accused of “trying to push into the Saga prefectural government”. (He has had one of his dramas cancelled by the sponsor because of his anti-nuc statements, he left the office in May)
Saga local government and Kyushu power company made up pro-nuc comments to manipulate the public opinion and intended to re-start the Genkai genpatsu.
Yamamoto Taro came to the prefectural government to submit the petition to stop re-starting the nuc plant.
However, Saga prefectural government built a barricade against the people.
Yamamoto Taro struggled to pass the petition but because the mayor did not come out,he could not pass it to him.
and 9/21, an administrative notary public accused him for “criminal trespass”.
However, this administrative notary public belonged to a political party called “Kyoto party” and the administrator of this party is also the president of “HORIBA”.
HORIBA dominates all the order of Geiger counter from the government, and trying to make us believe all the other brands are useless.
No wonder, Mr.Horiba is very pro-nuc.
We actually need to detect beta ray and alpha ray hopefully.
“Inspector +α” looks like the best one to detect.
(The video below is to show they detected 30 uSv/h at Fukushima station)
and this one is very pricy in Japan. (Over 150,000JPY)
The second best brands are MKS-05, RADEX1706.
They are proven to have the same quality.
In March, one of my French friends asked me if I needed something. I asked him to send me a Geiger counter. He took it a joke but now that’s one of the things that we most need.
I guess Inspector+, MKS-05,RADEX1706 might be cheaper in Europe or in USA than in Japan. and now USD and EURO are cheaper than before.
If you can suggest anything,please feel free to help us.
We need honest Geiger counters.
