    The shell for the Style 1 connector has snap-latches on each corner (at least they are shown in the picture and existed on the connector/shell that I bought 3 years ago). The shell supplied with the current style 2 connector has tiny pins in each corner. There appears to be no way to latch the two halves of the shell together and maintain a way to take them apart. I could use glue, but that would be permanent. Am I missing something?

    Hello… I have an Arduino Pro Mini 328 5v and a FTDI Basic Breakout 5v. If I connect the USB I get 5v from the PC. If I also connect RAW input on the Mini to 12v it goes to the on-board regulator and makes 5v, so I’m now feeding the Mini 5v from both sources. Is this a problem? 73, Garitron.
    Update: Since I have the FTDI board wired to the Arduino with individual wire-wrap wires, rather than a soldered-in header, I was able to disconnect the Vcc feeding into the Arduino from the USB source. This eliminated the two sources of +5 feeding the same circuitry. Bullet dodged. 73, Garitron

    After poking around the comments and documentation for the radiation reporting being done on pachube.com, it appears that the LND-712 Geiger tube conversion factor for CPM to uSv/hr is .00233
    I have no idea how one extracts that from the LND-712 datasheet at http://www.lndinc.com/products/348/
    Anybody know?

    There’s a national (global?) network in place already. See: http://www.radiationnetwork.com/
    Unfortunately, the reporting protocol is contained in a PC software application that is sold for $79. The application’s input is raw counts into an RS-232 port. See: http://www.geigercounters.com/NetworkVersion.htm
