Thanks for the link, Jim. I read about Richard's experiment with the rather hot smoke detector source. But another possibility is the Po sources used in static elimination (I used to have one that was 500 micro Ci but won't be anymore.) This is much hotter than the Am he was using but also may have some significant gammas (need to check).
