Re: Hormesis looking good, statistically, in new super study

<t>One factor to consider is whether or not the people living in each group were <br/> otherwise "equal" (jobs, socio-economic status, age, etc). <br/> <br/> What about the people living in the villages in India with high thorium levels, I <br/> understand they're getting in the neighborhood of 5R/y...

Re: SIMPLE Geiger Counter

<r>LND's bread and butter is selling zillions of little GM tubes. I imagine their <br/> business is booming lately. I buy one or two hundred a year, and have only <br/> moved up to the level where I get a free LND calendar <E>;-)</E> <br/> <br/> Is this for the 7317/series tube? I can try asking Bob...

Re: Canberra 8075 schematics?

Hi Larry,

I resent to your AOL account, hopefully you got them this time. Otherwise, try
emailing me, and I'll reply to your email with the schematics, perhaps that will
work if there's a typo with your email address from my end.

Re: Canberra 8075 schematics?

<r>I emailed you the 8076 Remote Interface board schematics the other day, <br/> Larry, let me know if they didn't arrive. I don't have the interfacing specs for <br/> the 8076, but think I have reverse engineered much of it, we'll tell once I fire it <br/> up, hopefully in a week or so. My wife jus...

Re: Canberra 8075 schematics?

<r>I was able to get schematics for the 8075 and 8076 ADC boards from them <br/> fairly easily. It took a few more emails to get the 8076 remote interface board <br/> schematics from them. The 8076 and 8075 are 99.9% the same, the with <br/> remote interface board taking the place of the various swi...
