For a scientist in you. Precision, Range and Affordable.
RADEX RD1706 had been developed on the base of RD1503 model, but it is more precise due to use of TWO Geiger-Muller tubes and can be used by professionals and non-professionals for quick and reliable measurement of radiation background in environment, soil and non-consumable products.
• Quick and precise radiation measurement on professional level
• Extra fast measurement cycle: from 1 to 26sec.
• Detect and Measure Beta, Gamma and X-ray Radiation
• Simple interface

About BACKGROUND mode:
How it works: Two measurement values are shown on the screen – Background and the difference of background with the current level. This allows user to see higher radiation sources. Such feature is usually used in professional dosimeters.
Chose this over the others due to it having two SBM-20.1 tubes, making it much more accurate. Is it worth the extra $50? Depends on what you use it for. I love it.
Gregory T –
very easy to use, light and hopefully precise. so far no complains. A bit unusual 3 button navigation, but after some time you get used to it.
A really well made geiger counter for most applications! It uses 2x SBM-20 counter – very nice! Really really small for its accuracy! I use this counter since over 10 years for radioactive mineral hunting in the Swiss mountains:-). There is no better counter for this kind of use with such a fair price on the market!
