FUNCTIONING BETA STATIONS
There are 123 EPA RadNet stations across America monitoring gross beta and gamma radiation. The following numbers are how many of the beta stations are online at these 123 locations.

July 21, 2014 – 42
July 14, 2014 – 44
July 7, 2014 – 39
June 30, 2014 – 42
June 19, 2014 – 40
June 2, 2014 – 44
May 5, 2014 – 42
April 13, 2014: 46
January 19, 2014 – 42
July 9, 2013 – 60

EnviroReporter.com thanks the volunteers that run these USEPA RadNet radiation stations. We only hope that the beta stations were all operable as beta-emitting radionuclides are the ones of concern continuously gushing into the Pacific Ocean in Fukushima Japan. Also of concern is the radioactive air from the burning of radioactive rubble throughout the country as well as the re-suspension of radiation already released from the triple meltdown that began March 11, 2011.

42 out of 123 beta monitors are functional as of this date out of the 123 areas covered. Two very important California stations – Fresno and San Diego – seem to have gone offline which is very problematic as the beta radiation we’re looking for flows from west to east and California is on, obviously, the Left Coast. What comes here first heads east. Overall, there is a significant trend sharply upwards this week as the following readings show.

Readings of 100 CPM or more indicate significant beta radiation activity. Note that below, the tilde symbol (~) before some rad readings means mathematically approximate.

Since July 14 (below in archives), Montgomery AL is bouncing around hitting 155 CPM July 18; Anchorage AK‘s beta graph is working again and still at under 20 CPM July 21; Fairbanks AK hit ~90 CPM in the last week; Phoenix AZ’s graph looks to be live again with ~90 CPM July 20 which is still way lower than before; Tuscon AZ is still bouncing around and hitting nearly ~195 CPM in this latest period; Little Rock AR dropped to ~60 CPM July; Fort Smith AR is getting busy too but a a lot cooler at under 50 CPM since July 17; Anaheim CA is nice and cool at ~20 CPM today but our very own Radiation Station Glendale California is showing marked jumps in the low 40s CPMs hitting 47 CPM in the last hour; Fresno CA‘s graph cut our July 18 joining Bakersfield CA as being MIA with Bakersfield not even having a gamma graph in this town that read extremely high before the monitors cut out long ago; Radiation Station Pacifica California, about a 100 miles to the west, is showing ~32 CPM July 21; Los Angeles CA’s beta graph stopped in March but the gamma is still not very active; Riverside CA remains active hitting ~90 CPM July 21; San Bernardino County CA was a reasonable 50 CPM yestertoday; San Diego is bottoming out nicely at ~25 CPM July 18 and then the graph stopped; Hartford CT was ~60 CPM July 21; Washington DC hit ~110 CPM in the last week; not one beta monitor out of five works in Florida even after us reporting it two weeks in a row; Augusta GA rose to ~147 CPM July 21; Ft. Wayne IN smashed through ~255 CPM July 18 and then the graph cuts out; Baton Rouge LA hit ~73 CPM in an active week trending upward; Orono ME looks nice and cool showing how the farthest away station from Fukushima usually has the lowest beta radiation but hit a negligible ~20 today; Baltimore MD’s beta and gamma graphs are still out which is troubling but apparently not enough to anyone to do something about it; Grand Rapids MI is radically trending higher hitting ~260 CPM today; St. Paul MN went soared to ~150 CPM July 21; St. Louis is heading up and up hitting over 200 CPM today; Lincoln NE sailed over ~360 CPM in the last week; Albuquerque NM peaked at ~370 CPM in the last week; Buffalo NY jumped to ~180 CPM in this latest period; New York City NY is not functioning as it hasn’t for years but its gamma gross count is getting busy; Syracuse NY’s beta graph is getting jumpy hitting ~125 CPM in the last week; Charlotte NC is picking up repeatedly hitting over 100 CPM and was ~120 CPM today at its height; Raleigh NC eased to ~50 CPM today after a jumpy week; holy Toledo OH jumped to over 150 CPM three times in the last few days; Corvalis OR hit ~150 CPM July 19; Pittsburgh PA‘s beta graph hit ~150 CPM today; Puerto Rico‘s beta graph doesn’t work but the gamma remains low and steady; Amarillo TX continues to astound with ~640 CPM July 20; Dallas TX was “just” ~80 CPM today; the whole state of Texas, save Ft. Worth, is getting hammered but lack of beta information – OOPS! Ft. Worth his ~125 CPM today; Salt Lake City UT’s beta station is still down since a huge beta increase over 200 CPM in early May and it’s gamma bears watching; Charleston WV is still out after nearly hitting 400 CPM in March then the beta graph going belly up March 13 but the gamma graph works and is getting very active; and Madison WI hit ~192 CPM July 19.

The EPA RadNet system is run by volunteers according to the US EPA’s “Day in the Life of a Rad Sample.” EnviroReporter.com will continue to monitor RadNet to make it possible for the public and government to have quick and easy access to this important data.

Up five stations since last week, 44 out of 123 beta monitors are functional as of this date out of the 123 areas covered. Albuquerque, New Mexico is back online. That station is one of the closest to the troubled, and radiation-leaking WIPP facility in the Land of Enchantment.

Readings of 100 CPM or more indicate significant beta radiation activity. Note that below, the tilde symbol (~) before some rad readings means mathematically approximate.

Since July 7 (below in archives), Montgomery AL has settled down to ~30 CPM today; Anchorage AK‘s beta graph is working again and so nicely low; Fairbanks AK eased up and is ~40 CPM today; Phoenix AZ’s graph looks to be live again with ~40 CPM which is way lower than before; Tuscon AZ is still bouncing around considerably over 100 CPM hitting ~385 CPM July 12; Little Rock AR is still picking up hitting ~165 CPM today; Fort Smith AR is getting busy too but a little cooler at ~90 CPM today; Anaheim CA is nice and cool at ~30 CPM today but our very own Radiation Station Glendale California is showing marked jumps in the low 30 CPMs; Fresno CA has is coming in at 35 CPM this afternoon, which is quite low for the scenic city; Radiation Station Pacifica California, about a 100 miles to the west, is showing tangible heightened radiation today coming in at about 3 times its background at 40 CPM; Los Angeles CA’s beta graph stopped in March but the gamma is not very active; Riverside CA remains active but eased up to ~60 CPM today; San Bernardino County CA was a reasonable ~60 CPM today; San Diego is bottoming out nicely at ~19 CPM today; Hartford CT hit the threshold 100 CPM July 12; Washington DC at ~65 CPM today; not one beta monitor out of five works in Florida even after us reporting it last week; Augusta GA settled down to 65 CPM today; Ft.

Just 39 out of 123 beta monitors are functional as of this date out of the 123 cities covered. Three stations went off line in just the last week including Albuquerque, New Mexico which has seen heightened activity. That station is one of the closest to the troubled, and radiation-leaking WIPP facility in the same state. At least the gamma graphs are working which is some consolation, but not much. See our June 30, 2014 report for deeper analysis on gamma graphs.

Readings of 100 CPM or more indicate significant beta radiation activity. Note that below, the tilde symbol (~) before some rad readings means mathematically approximate.

Since June 30 (below in archives), Montgomery AL started trending up again up to ~165 CPM yesterday; Anchorage AK‘s beta graph stopped producing data July 3; Fairbanks AK is picking up hitting 100 CPM in the last week; Phoenix AZ’s graph is still offline since June 10 when it was ranging up to 165 CPM the week before outage; Tuscon AZ is still bouncing around considerably over 100 CPM; Little Rock AR is picking up hitting 200 CPM today; Fort Smith AR is getting busy too hitting ~220 CPM today; Anaheim CA is nice and cool at ~25 CPM today; Fresno CA has is coming in at 90 CPM this afternoon; Los Angeles CA’s beta graph stopped in March but the gamma is not active; Riverside CA remains quite active marking ~135 CPM today; San Bernardino County CA keeps crossing the 100 CPM threshold but is a reasonable 75 CPM today; San Diego is chillin’ at just 30 CPM today which is higher than normal for the beach city; Washington DC is somewhat active at ~90 CPM today; not one beta monitor out of five works in Florida; Augusta GA settled down to 50 CPM today; Ft. Wayne IN hit ~225 CPM again in the last week; Orono ME looks nice and cool showing how the farthest away station from Fukushima has the lowest beta radiation with ~19 CPM today; Baltimore MD’s beta and gamma graphs are still out; Grand Rapids MI hit ~180 CPM July 5 up from ~20 CPM July 4; St. Paul MN went soared to ~255 CPM yesterday; St. Louis is trending active with ~75 CPM today; Albuquerque NM‘s beta station is now offline after peaking at ~335 CPM June 22 with the previous high being ~417 CPM April Fools Day; Buffalo NY was ~70 CPM yesterday; New York City NY is not functioning as it hasn’t for years but its gamma gross count has picked up somewhat; Syracuse NY’s beta graph settled down to ~40 CPM today; Charlotte NC is picking up repeatedly hitting over 100 CPM but is ~60 CPM today; Raleigh NC jumped to 160 one day in the latest period; holy Toledo OH jumped to ~177 CPM ~July 5; Corvalis OR is up to ~80 CPM today; Pittsburgh PA‘s beta graph stopped ~July 1 after activity increase; Puerto Rico‘s beta graph doesn’t work but the gamma is still low and steady; Amarillo TX continues to amaze with ~420 CPM today; Dallas TX hit ~270 CPM on the 4th of July; the whole state of Texas, save Ft. Worth, is getting hammered but lack of beta information means the Lone Star State is still nearly blind but nevertheless hot; Salt Lake City UT’s beta station is still down since a huge beta increase over 200 CPM in early May; Charleston WV is still out after nearly hitting 400 CPM in March then the beta graph going belly up March 13; and Madison WI hit ~175 CPM today but had reached ~295 CPM May 28, 2014.

Our EPA RadNet Air Monitoring shows that 42 beta monitors are functional as of this date out of the 123 cities covered. That’s up from 40 but about half a dozen of them seem to have stopped on June 27. We are still counting these as active just in case it has to do with it being the end of June. Even without beta graphs, one can glean data out of the gamma graphs – take note of the radiation reading patterns in locations that do have both beta and gamma graphs. They often move together. So this could help at least give an idea of the beta readings at a site if only the gamma information is available. Note that below, the tilde symbol before some rad readings “~” means mathematically approximate.

Some places got hotter since June 19 (below in archives): Montgomery AL started settling down but zoomed up to ~140 CPM yesterday; Anchorage AK is very low; Phoenix AZ’s graph has stayed out since June 10 when it was ranging up to 165 CPM the week before outage; Tuscon AZ was over 200 CPM today; Fresno CA has cooled down to 90 CPM; Los Angeles CA’s beta graph crapped out in March but the gamma is not active; Riverside CA dropped to 100 CPM today; Augusta GA settled down to 100 CPM by today; Ft. Wayne IN hit 225 CPM in the last week; Orono ME looks nice and cool showing how the farthest away station from Fukushima has the lowest beta radiation with ~17 CPM today; Baltimore MD’s beta and gamma graphs are still out; St. Paul MN went nuts and hit 340 CPM in the last week; St. Louis has dropped to ~50 CPM even with that burning radioactive dump; Albuquerque NM‘s beta station is back online and trending down with only ~55 CPM today after peaking at ~335 CPM June 22; Buffalo NY is trending up hitting ~140 CPM June 28; New York City NY is not functioning as it hasn’t for years; Syracuse NY’s beta graph settled down to ~65 CPM today; Charlotte NC is picking up repeatedly hitting over 100 CPM; Raleigh NC jumped to 150 today; holy Toledo OH jumped to ~140 CPM today; Corvalis OR really cooled off to ~20 CPM today; Pittsburgh PA hit ~105 CPM yesterday; Puerto Rico‘s beta graph doesn’t work but the gamma is low and steady; Amarillo TX continues to amaze with 450 CPM June 27; Dallas TX down to 55 CPM today; the whole state of Texas, save Ft. Worth, is getting hammered but lack of beta information means the Lone Star State is nearly blind but nevertheless hot; Salt Lake City UT’s beta station is still down; Charleston WV is still out after nearly hitting 400 CPM in March; and Madison WI hit ~145 CPM June 28 after topping out at ~295 CPM May 28, 2014.

Our EPA RadNet Air Monitoring shows that only 40 beta monitors are functional as of this date out of the 123 cities covered. Last July 9, 60 stations were operable meaning there has been a 33% loss even as the Fukushima and WIPP fiasco’s continue unabated. These stations are run by volunteers who deserve our gratitude. They also deserve compensation because we deserve 100 percent functionality of these beta graphs.

Of particular concern are some locales that caught our attention today on the working beta graphs: Montgomery AL is at 165 CPM; Phoenix AZ’s graph is out since June 10; Tuscon AZ was over 500 CPM June 1; Fresno CA is picking up hitting over 350 CPM this month; Los Angeles CA’s beta graph crapped out in March; Riverside CA keeps cookin’; Augusta GA hit 350 CPM in the last week; Orono ME looks nice and cool showing how the farthest away station from Fukushima has the lowest beta radiation; Baltimore MD’s beta and gamma graphs are out; Albuquerque NM was trending down before its beta station, not too far from WIPP, went belly up; Buffalo NY is trending up hitting 110 CPM June 10 but Syracuse NY’s beta station quit in the last month; Corvalis OR is picking up topping 150 CPM in the last week; Pittsburgh PA continues to trouble; Amarillo TX is trending down ‘only’ hitting 300 CPM in the last week; the whole state of Texas, save Ft. Worth, is getting hammered to various degrees but El Paso TX, which is close to WIPP, has lost both beta and gamma monitors; Salt Lake City UT’s beta crapped out a month ago; Olympia WA is looking sweet with low beta and hot Charleston WV has lost both graphs when they least needed being radiation blind.

Over 2,051 special tests and original reports from nine Radiation Stations plus Radiation Station Santa Monica California‘s 3,847 tests total 5,898 special radiation tests and reports as of July 1, 2014. As of this date, over 1,566,689 people have seen Radiation Station Santa Monica California’s 24/7 online streaming begun March 15, 2011 along with 19,144 raddies watching Radiation Station Glendale California‘s continuous online streaming complete with graphs totally over 1,585,833 visitors plus tens of thousands of folks coming to our YouTube and Facebook pages.
