There were dozens of Do It Yourself Geiger counter projects that came up right after the Japan reactor incident...
This company standardized one of the designs and put together kits.

Looks like it is designed to use old Soviet surplus tubes -- HV only goes up to 600 V.
Support for several common Geiger-Müller tubes: SI-3BG, SI-1G, and SBM-20.  HV supply can be adjusted from ~300-600V.

Serial data logging!  Counts per second (CPS), counts per minute (CPM), and equivalent dose are reported via the serial port once a second.

MightyOhm » Blog Archive » Geiger Counter Kits are (finally) in stock! 

There are currently three ordering options:
    You can buy the complete Geiger Counter kit with a tested, known good SBM-20 Geiger-Muller tube included (recommended).
    You can buy the same kit with all parts except the Geiger tube (in case you already have one).
    Or, you can purchase a bare PCB only (for experimenters).

$99, $35, $12 respectively...
