Chernobyl, where the disastrous meltdown of the reactor’s core occurred a number of years ago, is pictured below. Chuck Holden wore the MTM RAD on a recent trip to the site. Even after almost 20 years have passed, the RAD detected a radiation level 200 times above the acceptable safe level.
The MTM RAD is able to function with the help of its integrated Geiger-Mueller Tube. The MTM RAD has a user preset threshold alarm that will sound once your set radiation level has been reached. The EL backlit digital display features the current time in a minute/second format, the date in a day/month format, the year, and a daily alarm in hour/minute format.
