Radioactive Rain At 11 Times Background

We took a sample from our truck at approximately 4:30pm on 4/28/12 and it returned a reading of 11 times greater than background radiation. The reading is inline with the lower readings we would expect from the Southern Jetstream POST-Fukushima, Pre-Fukushima we would not expect more than a 3x reading.

One interesting thing we were able to show in this video is that sampling/collection of fallout via a swipe is self limiting; we doubled the surface area wiped and only slightly increase the radioactivity of the sample.
