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.

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.

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.

Working GEN-U-INE, Radiation Detector BIG BUCKS OFF !

Why do you need one of these? Beats me... well, unless you reside near Chernobyl, you may just want to add it to your collection. Not that this baby doesn't work. It does. It was designed to be used by Civil Defense personnel to determine radioactive contamination levels that could result from an enemy attack or other nuclear disaster.

Police and firemen used similar units like these in the '60s. It measures gamma radiation and will detect as high as 500 roentgens per hour, and will also detect beta radiation from fissionable materials. Runs on 1 D, 4 D or 2 D with 1 AA batteries (not included, no choice). Measures 8 1 / 2 x 4 1 / 2 x 4"h., weighs 4 lbs.
