Concern/Watch and Alert Sites
Each radiation monitoring site has a NORM value set by NETC.com software, which is the background radiation level. RADCON-1 = N.O.R.M, RADCON-2 = Rising, RADCON-3 = Elevated, RADCON-4 = Concern/Watch, RADCON-5 = RAM email sent. When the level exceeds the RADCON-4 Concern/Watch level on the chart, other conditions must be met to trigger a RADCON-5 RAM (Radiation Alert Message) email or text message to your phone. Our software uses statistical analyses to generate these alerts.
Do Not Panic, always check with other reliable sources. Please read the disclaimer below **
RADCON-5 RAM email sent
Some radiation monitoring sites are maintained by the government and other are privately owned. In either case the reading may not be accurate. Our software uses statistical analyses to generate these alerts. CPM (counts per minute) is modified by our software to reduce false radiation alert messages.
Do Not PANIC. It could be software failure or bad equipment. Always check with a second source like the news stations or the government before making any decisions about this alert.
