Also... my understanding is that DU ballast is encased in steel which
would shield a lot of the low energy stuff.

There has been some writing about dose rate measurements in planes. I
seem to recall that DU can be used as ballast in planes. Even though not
exceptionally active, I suppose that could affect measurements somewhat
inside a plane!
