Radon is one serious business indeed. Your question prompted me to look at http://www.google.com/search?q=radon+detection&hl=en&lr=&safe=off&start=0&sa=N
to see what kind of radon detection methods might be useful for you. I'm struck by the fact that there are no simple circuits listed anywhere to serve that purpose. Your reference to such
a circuit may not be a reliable one.
If you suspect that you really do have a radon problem, I strongly suggest that you seek expert assistance from local offices of appropriate agencies (Health Dept., Consumer Affairs, etc.)
Also, I believe that Scientific American magazine had at least one article about the subject within the last few years. You may want to look the topic up in their indexes of back issues.
