Abstract : Replacement GM tubes for the Civil Defense CDV-700 Portable Survey Meter were not always compatible with every instrument even though both tube and instrument met the specification requirements. To alleviate this problem, a comprehensive sepcification was written for a GM tube based upon desirable features rather than demonstrated performance. The report details the engineering effort which produced a tube to meet formidable new specification. (Author)
