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.

    Appears to work but not calibrated. So we either have to return it or try to get it calibrated somewhere else...

    Missing knobs, Could not open cable compartment, did not explain the complications involved in setting up and calibrating the meter.

    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.
