[ RadSafe ] Easy radiation quiz.

I first ran into George perhaps a year ago either as a result of our company 
website or maybe the Wireline Mailing List.  Whichever it was, I got what 
seemed like a few strange emails, but as a result of friendly correspondence 
decided George is an OK kinda guy, though perhaps a bit eccentric.  But then 
quite a few of us on this list are a bit eccentric, so George fits right in. 
I certainly would not compare George to our self-appointed DU expert, Mr. 
Salsman (sp?).  I would also not suspect George of developing spam mailing 
lists, or anything else of a devious nature.

Then he tried to sell used equipment on RADSAFE, later he started a "survey"
on instruments used by RADSAFErs. ?????

I have kept out of this discussion, as I did not feel I could contribute
anything positive...
But the second "classroom installment" which is raising some hackles,
triggered my curiosity as to who is our new "professor" and what are his

It seems he has stumbled onto this group and is apparently attempting to
gain some credibility by posing textbook questions, no doubt well researched
through internet mining. But this does not seem to be an effective way of
gaining credibility - rather the opposite, judging by the responses.

And to what motivation? I decided to do a little "internet mining" courtesy
of Google and find that K0FF may have something to do with a Ham Radio call
sign (as GD seems to be active in these circles},  NLNL - New London
Nucleonics Lab seems to be a private hobby shop and there is no "real"
company as GEOelectronics (at least not associated with GD) except as a
storefront for GD's principal activity, which seems to be selling used
electronic equipment and radiation meters through EBay.......
which is owned by:

But, in the spirit of full disclosure, I find another EBay seller quoting
George Dowell as "an expert on these crystals (BaF2 as a neutron

But in his defense, GD is very prompt with responses regarding detection
instruments (freely admitting he has called the sales force of the company
in question to get the information). So he is useful.....

But I wish he would not set quizzes for us, as we have plenty to do besides
going back to school.

Reminds me of one of our "experts" on DU, who for many months tried to
bamboozles us with "technical quotes....."
