SOHO X-ray Generator Intensity Measurements

SOHO, my X-ray generator, was recently measured  with the Geiger counter in logging mode. By reading the data through a serial port, the intensity measurements that I accomplished are as follows:

CPM: counts per minute
uSv/hr: microsieverts per hour

Background Radiation:
CPM: 23   uSv/hr: 0.14
Two second generator burst at three feet away:
CPM: 2300   uSv/hr: 12.72        (counter switches to fast measurement mode)
Five second generator burst at three feet away:
CPS: 84   CPM: 3996  uSv/hr: 22.77       (counter is switched in fast mode)
