The Polish DP-66 is a Soviet-era Geiger Counter that was standard issue among all Warsaw pact nations. With a time-proven design, the DP-66 can be as accurate and reliable as modern day military issue Geiger counters. While most of the DP-66's we have inspected were made in the 1970s, the log books show that these units were calibrated and in service all through the early 2000s.
