We have an old Eberline He3 counter. NIST said they don't calibrate neutron counters any more, and also said Eberline's calibration is flaky.

We sent it to Eberline anyway. The resulting data took considerable handwaving to interpret, and I have never trusted it. Just a warning to anyone with this brand of meter. They calibrate for mRem, and can't understand why anyone would actually want neutron flux instead.
