This kit is a THS[1] project in collaboration with SafeCast[2]. Once you buy and build your device, you own it (hardware and software) and the data it produces. You can opt-in to have your data logged to the THS account on Pachube[3] (for free) and have it available to the public (for free).

The kit consist of 3 parts: motherboard (Freakduino), daugtherboard (NetRAD shield) and radiation sensor (SBM-20 GM tube). If you have any of these, you can use yours, but we'll have to make sure they are similar enough.
Once assembled, tuned and tested you just connect it to a DHCP-enabled LAN connected to the Internet and it will upload data to Pachube data aggregation service (e.g. see http://pachube.com/feeds/29600)
