NukAlert Radiation Alarm
1 unit $150.00 - BEST PRICE ON THE NET
24/7 Monitor & Alarm, Runs Continuously for 10 Years
everywhere your keys go, with NukAlert's 24/7 constant monitoring,
you'll always be promptly alerted to the unseen, but acutely
dangerous, levels of radiation if/when present.
A benefit of the NukAlert, not to be overlooked, is
that it will also confirm when and where those higher levels
of radiation are not present, too.
With the anticipated general public angst, perhaps even panic,
accompanying any future developing nuclear emergency, it will
also be very reassuring to know with confidence when, for
your locale, that your family is out of the worst danger,

Q: Who Needs a Radiation Detector or Meter?
A: The reasons for acquiring a radiation detector or meter,
and formulating a family nuclear response strategy, are
as varied as are peoples concerns for the future and the
safety of their loved ones in this ever changing world.
The following all-inclusive list would require different
responses (sheltering or evacuation) depending on the nature
of the nuclear emergency, but clearly survival in all would
be enhanced with having a radiation detector or meter close
The specific causes of potential life-threatening nuclear
radiation emergencies include...
- Nuclear power plant accidents here or abroad (Three Mile
- Nuclear materials processing plant accidents (Tokaimura,
- Nuclear waste (radioactive waste from hospitals, spent
fuel and radioactive waste from nuclear power plants, radioactive
contaminated materials, etc.) storage or processing facilities
- Nuclear waste transport truck or train accidents
Accidents involving non-waste, but normal daily nuclear
materials transport (trucks, planes, trains, couriers) One
out every 50 HazMat shipments contain radioactive materials.
Approximately three million packages of radioactive material
are shipped in the United States each year.
Improper storage of radioactive materials (non-waste) at
any point during their normal material life cycle. (Power
plants, Medical, Industrial, Academic, etc.)
Lost or stolen radioactive sources (Over the last 50 years,
incidents of lost or stolen licensed radioactive devices
occur at the rate of once every other day. See Lost and
Stolen Nuclear Materials in the U.S. and NRC Documents Revealing
Thousands of Radioactive Source Are Missing.)
Nuclear terrorism here via...
- An attack on, or sabotage of, a nuclear power plant. (See
Sabotage and Terrorism of Nuclear Power Plants)
- Or, a real terrorist atomic bomb detonated here (See Do
terrorists really have nukes here?)
- Or, much more likely, conventional explosives used to
disperse radioactive materials (dirty bomb) to effectively
contaminate an area and much within in it. (See Do terrorists
really have nukes here?)
- Or, food or water supplies could be contaminated with
- Or, a strong radioactive source could be placed in a location
adjacent to where large numbers of the public would file
past. They could be unknowingly and dangerously exposed
to it, such as at a subway que, sports arena or stadium,
- Limited nuclear war overseas with the fallout carried
here by the wind (See Trans-Pacific Fallout for threat here
if any of the 'players' went nuclear in the Mid-East, or
Pakistan, India, North Korea, China, Russia, etc.)
- Nuclear War involving a direct attack upon the USA. (Think
that's highly unlikely in your life-time? See Nuclear War
Unthinkable? Russian & Chinese & North Korea Preparations
Today! and The Final Phase)
Everybody will have different opinions about which of the
above nuclear threats is most likely to occur or impact
their own family sometime in the future. Regardless, though,
in all cases, knowing exactly what the radioactivity is,
where you are standing, will always make for better informed
decisions in then taking the correct protective action to
minimize any future radiation exposure for your family.
Most all modern radiation detector and meter units available
were designed for 'peace time' low-level radiation use and
would not detect the higher, more dangerous, levels associated
with nuclear emergencies. While they might be adequate for
measuring natural background radiation levels and above
to a point, most would 'max out' well before the radiation
levels approached anything near life-threatening.
Cresson H. Kearny, covered this point, too, in the Oak
Ridge National Laboratory book Nuclear War Survival Skills,
(Chapter 10 - Fallout Radiation Meters) where he wrote:
"Instruments that measure
only milliroentgen-range dose rates are sold for war use
by some companies. Since most Americans have no idea what
size of radiation doses would incapacitate or kill them,
and do not even know that a milliroentgen is 1/1000 of a
roentgen, some people buy instruments that are capable of
measuring maximum dose rates of only one roentgen or less
per hour. The highest dose rate that it can measure, one
roentgen per hour, is far too low to be of much use in a
Low-range geiger counter type meters, like the CDV-700,
Gamma Scout & RadScanner 500, would be helpful if decontamination
was required later, and we even offer them here, but without
a higher-range detector first, and initially, warning you
away from exposure to those higher levels of potentially
lethal radiation, the opportunity to later even use a low-range
meter may never come!
Another serious drawback of currently available 'portable'
radiation detectors and meters was their very limited useful
battery life and that even the best of them were still as
big as a paperback novel. These limitations make them both
difficult to keep continuously "ON" 24/7 and to
have it with you personally throughout the day and night
as close as your car keys normally are.
The State of the Art, Patent-Pending, NukAlert sensor
is composed of a Cadmium Sulphide photocell exposed to light
emitted by a radioluminescent rare earth phosphor (scintillator).
The sensor signal is sampled with every tick or alarm chirp
group by a small custom microprocessor. The NukAlert
is always "ON" 24/7 continuously monitoring and
sampling its immediate environment. The long-life battery
combined with this patent-pending technology provides continuous
monitoring for a minimum of ten years with enough reserve
to respond and alarm to a prolonged radiation emergency.
(Even at the highest suggested retail, and they are cheaper
when buying as few as two, it works out to less than $16
per year over the lifetime of the battery!) And, this key
chain attachable, carry everywhere, rugged detector and
meter is completely sealed to prevent moisture or contaminants
from affecting its operation.
Additionally, it will also confirm for its owner when and
where the most dangerous levels of radiation are not present,
too, which is also vitally important. With the anticipated
general public angst, perhaps even panic, accompanying any
future developing nuclear emergency, it will be very reassuring
to know with confidence that, for your locale, your family
is out of the worst danger.
We see owning a NukAlert detector the same as buying
family medical insurance, where you acquire it even though
you still hope/pray never to have to use it. (Also, too,
just like insurance, it'll likely not be readily available
after the fact either!) But, with the NukAlert, know
when the "We interrupt this program for a Special Bulletin..."
comes across the TV or radio, and your family looks to you,
you will be much better prepared for the worst, and to then
Our commitment to assure radiation protection for all American
families is focused on essential personal civil defense
education, and that begins with first dispelling the widely
embraced nuclear explosion and radiation un-survivability
'myths'. Doing so will then improve most American families
odds of survival greatly when they learn the often simple,
but truly effective, protective actions they can utilize.
You'll discover that more than half of the NukAlert Manual
details practical and readily affordable family Nuclear
Survival Strategies for if/when the alarm sounds for-real
in our future.
