Details & Specs

High radiation level? 717 Portable Detector Tells the real story.

No guesswork with this working Model 717 Radiation Detector. It determines radioactive contamination levels from a possible nuclear disaster. Every bomb shelter should have one.

In fact, this unit has a removable bottom panel with a spool of cable you can place outside your bomb shelter with the gauge instrument inside to read radiation levels from underground.

Built-in mode selector. Uses a single D battery (not included). Measures 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 7"h., weighs 4 lbs.

Condition: brand new, but may have some shelf-wear due to long-term storage.

!!! Limited Quantities !!!

Reviews
New U.S. Military Surplus Radiation Detector is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Measures only high radiation levels This is a 50 year old device that measures high levels of gamma radiation such as after a nuclear bomb. Not usable for less than 1 rad/hr which is a more typical level encountered in the environment. I returned it as it would not suit my needs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Appears to work but not calibrated. So we either have to return it or try to get it calibrated somewhere else...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Missing knobs, Could not open cable compartment, did not explain the complications involved in setting up and calibrating the meter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This model of radiation detector is mostly a cool prop since it is not capable of reading low doses of radiation. This is a device that is designed for CD officers to detect high levels of radiation following a nuclear blast. The designed is very high quality and a great testament to the Cold War but is not a good tool for checking radiation levels around your average American home.
