I dunno... course you can take that one step further, people like me who deal with radioactive sources and tubes, dealing with energies upwards of 1.3 Mev, AND SMOKE! hahah

I did make a misquote on that last message, I'd have to look, Ir192 should run about .6Mev so 600Kv as its upper end energy, Co60 is 1.3Mev.

There is a bunch of numbers floating around, but Ir192 has a constant of 5.2R - 5.9R per curie at 1 foot per hour, When I started in the biz it was 5.9, now a days its considered 5.2 or 5.3 depending on where and who you're talking to.
