Mighty Ohm Geiger Counter Build

31 Dec 2015 - Nic Ho Chee

I've been meaning to solder up the Mighty Ohm Geiger Counter Kit for a while. It was sitting on my desk forlorn and unused, and I had a couple of hours free just before Christmas to try it out.

A few hours later the kit was blipping along nicely, with a few observations from my very brief interaction with it:

I'll be spending a little more time with the unit once I can get hold of a USB -> Serial port, and will put some code up on github somewhere once I have something to try out :).

It is worth following @mightyohm, the creator of the kit and his blog over at There is some great stuff there, including the Soldering Is Easy comic book :).
