    That question is far too vague... It depends on the job being covered as well as what you are dealing with..
 Pu, U, etc... Ro 2,s and teletectors have little use with Pu, curium tru, etc. 8)

Not a vague question. It is a meter. They're not to be specified to RadCon or anything else. Just a meter you like to use. Diversify my friend. We all learn from each other!

If there is a LOT of Pu, it might show up on the RO-2...   [whistle] [whistle]

Autoranging Teletector when doing very high doses after a crud burst.  No flipping through scales and looking at the meter to calculate the dose.  The digital read out of an autoranging teletector should be required at all Nuke plants because of ALARA, I think they are alot faster. Also I  think the accuracy is better. Hard to do a miss calculation when you read the digital read out instead of a needle and a times scale. Have  only the primitive ones that you flip scales as  emergency backup.

An Eberline Black Widow CP works on Gamma, Beta and Alpha. Haven't seen one since the 70's though......

Position Sensitive Proportional Counter, ( Surface Contamination Monitor)  Nice, takes thousands of readings and converts them into a picture a truly genius machine. Here are some maps I have done with it and the machine.   Pancake  and most other probes are so 1940.   I put together a map that represented  16 acres of floor space. This is 21st century.  A company not to be mentioned did surveys side by side with us.  They only found about 10 percent  of what the machine found.  We eventually had to redo their work.

See picture page right here on Nukeworker. There are about  10 pictures there that show it and the surveys. You can even tell if a person  forged a survey.  I show a YOUR FIRED picture and you can  click it and see why.  I also like the grid map where you can see the areas that exceed 100 cm2  criteria and Meter square criteria. SWEET!!!! For Decon

This has been bought  out from Shonka Research by Millenium Nuclear who now has it.

AN PDR 27. It is a beautiful shade of Army green, it has a nifty window for beta, and you can expect it to work normally even after a fall to the bottom of a Dry Dock.

I too loved the AN-PDR 27 ...though mine was a nice haze grey.
