Home Radiation Monitor

Shortly after the Fukushima disaster, I decided it would be a good idea to monitor the radiation levels at my house to see if there was a detectable increase.

I took an old civil defense radiation meter (Electro-Neutronics CDV-700) and hooked it up to my Linux laptop. I have it configured to record WAV files of the meter output. I also created a C program which will process each sound file and perform several steps of signal processing and then output a text file with the click count.
