Recently, I noticed an increase in radiation levels detected (see attachment) by my outside radiation monitoring station. This concerns me because the filter I still currently have on my filter that is a already a month old. I change them monthly and near the end of the month, they tend to not show the elevated levels of radiation as clearly because of the lack of sampling/airflow. Here is a screen of my past two weeks graph, 1-hour average. Today I will change my filter and I'm afraid how high the levels detected might be.

As you can see from the jetstream forecast map for today (link below) our warm weather is coming straight off the warm (Fukushima contaminated) Pacific Coast Ocean.

FYI - Electrical disruption of station equipment - air purifier ONLY

While out of town, the period of peak radiation detection on February 19th 2017 and February 21st 2017 are not accurately displayed due to our son accidentally disrupting the power to the air purifier unit. Thankfully I (long ago) decided (for this reason) to make sure the geiger counter and computer are on different electrical circuits. You can safely assume that any slightly elevated level you see on my graph between February 19 - 21 of 2017 would be much higher than displayed currently.
