Abstract
Radioactive fallout from the triple reactor disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, following a magnitude 9.0 earthquake and subsequent tsunami, is readily observed in soil samples collected from Japan, well beyond the exclusion zone. Samples from three regions, approximately 210 km, 550 km, and 1060 km from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, were tested for gross gamma activity and radio-isotopic composition. The primary isotopes of focus were the most commonly detected radio-isotopes of Cesium, 134 Cs and 137 Cs.

Note: Another individual should be listed as a co-contributor, given their important role in providing material from Japan for testing, but their name has been left out for purposes of anonymity. To that person, go my deepest thanks.

Japanese Samples Tested using Gamma Spectroscopy — First Results

Recently, a friend of mine sent me a series of samples from all across Japan. He, my friend, lives in Japan and obtained these samples at some personal risk. I have started the process of testing each of the many samples using gamma spectroscopy and other techniques. I will be posting my results for each sample as I test them, which may take time given my busy work schedule.

I have tested an air filter from an AC/heater unit in Saga City, Saga Prefecture (1100 Km south of Fukushima), Japan and a sample from just under a water rain spout in residential housing area (back yard), of a person living in Kashiwa City, Chiba Prefecture (26km NE from Tokyo).

I found Cs134 and Cs137 in the soil sample and I believe that I found Kr85 in the air filter. You can read the details and download my full report from my website. Please review my first report, Sample J-F, and my preliminary details of Sample J-A, which I will fully post soon.

Please keep in mind that these sorts of contaminants are quite expected in Japan. Each sample comes from a few hundred to only 1100 km from Fukushima, so the results are expected.

Hello,

I have been sick for the past week and very busy too! This has stopped my video production. I will restart very soon!

I recently purchased this beautiful Civil Defense version 700, Victoreen Instrument Company, Model six A, Geiger counter from eBay for about $200 dollars.

Many units like it sell for less, but the seller reconditioned the unit and replaced many of the parts. The unit was in great condition and ready for anouther 50 years of use!!!

This is my tribute to Mr Wizard!

Please tell me what you think. I tested five radioactive elements and how you the gamma spectrums of each!
