This video is the kick off of my "Fukushima Radiation Monitoring Project " where you get to submit your radiation observation data for everyone to see.
Links to information on building your own tin can radiation meter also included in this video.

Additional dose rate caclulations for the Kearny meter results..:

If 2mm loss of charge per hour = a dose of .03 R/ hr and 1R = 10mSv
Then 2mm loss of charge per hour = .3 mSv / hr

Also then:
.5mm loss of charge per hour = .075 mSv/ hr dose rate
.4mm loss of charge per hour = .06 mSv/ hr dose rate
.3mm loss of charge per hour = .045 mSv/ hr dose rate
.2mm loss of charge per hour = .03 mSv/ hr dose rate
.1mm loss of charge per hour = .015 mSv/ hr dose rate
.05mm loss of charge per hour = .0075 mSv/ hr dose rate
.025 mm loss of charge per hour = .00375 mSv/ hr dose rate
.0125 mm loss of charge per hour = .001875 mSv/ hr dose rate
.00625 mm loss of charge per hour = .000938 mSv/ hr dose rate

Some sources say that the radiation dose for increase cancer risk of 1 in a 1,000 is 12.5 mSv (the dose over what time period was not mentioned).

That source also said that radiation sickness onset can begin at 750 mSv. (the dose over what time period was not mentioned).
