Just a note or two on XRAY monitoring...

A good little handheld commercial monitor is the Monitor4 device... it is sensitive down to about 1.8kev photons by actual calibration. The units are rather pricey for the amateur - around $400, but very convenient to use.

However.... they use a nice little geiger tube which one can purchase...separately and with some electronics construction probably put the whole thing together for under $100.
