    Radioactive@Home: New sensor batch (KIT)

    Due to delay in production of V3 (white tube) sensors, we are going to resume distribution of redesigned V2 sensors (black box).This sensor will be available only as a KIT*. The design work and testing should be completed by the end of this week. Kits should be available at the begining of the year 2014.* - PCB + programmed uP + tested geiger tube + enclosure

    More...

    Yes! Finally! These sensors are a great way to gain some easy FB points as i mentioned in some other thread somewhere recently. It's also a non-CPU intensive project that can run 24/7 like WuProp without hurting anything. I'm glad to finally see they've got some more sensors coming

    Oh, and you get more badges

    I've got to check and see if by "KIT" they mean something that requires soldering skillz or acquiring your own radiation detecting tube...

    I believe they mean soldering skillz. Their kit will include the Geiger Tube.

    Hmmm, found nothing.
    The polish site leads to a polish Ebay site where I understand absolutely nothing not even the menu.
    And if I search worldwide I find nothing at all, what is the correct name in English, any idea ?

    Try Geiger–Müller tube or just "Geiger tube"

    Edit: It just dawned on me that you may be talking about the complete "Kit", Yes?
