This is a Geiger counter originally used for Civil Defense purposes. This came in non functional.  I checked all the semi conductors, diodes and transistors.  I went through the resistors and found them mostly in tolerance.  I tested the meter with an ohm meter and a 10k series resistor.  I started with a 1 meg resistor and worked my way down dividing by half until the meter registered 1/2 scale.  That satisfied me if the meter was good or not.

The unit came in with a spare used G-M tube.   It only needed the loose pins super glued.  Once the new G-M tube was in I measured about 600 volts on the tube.  The scope showed the typical fly-back transformer weird wave shape by simply putting the probe tip near the fly-back transformer. 

This was something new for me to work on.  A hybrid mix of solid state and a G-M tube.  It was fun.  See the pictures below.

Restored and operational. 

The probe holder and yellow stand-off is with the owner.  He want to mold and duplicate a new one before the original breaks clean through.

The G-M tube ground depends on these two case contact points.  They were pained and I did not like that.  A file cleaned off the paint to establish a reliable ground.

Calibration on the right.  I do not have a cal procedure nor do I have a radiation standard.
