Inspector CPM (Counts per minute)
Multiply CPM by .0025 to get μSv/h. Per site owner, 40-46 CPM is normal. Twice this is of concern.
|San Francisco, CA (Bay Area) botsmaker Ustream channel Click here owner's site. Divide right hand axis by 100 to get the μSv/h. This is based on 1 Sv = 100 rem and 1 Roentgen (owner's scale) = 1 Rad = 1 rem.||Redlands, California |
