Abstract: The ANSTO working standard ion chamber is used routinely for the standardisation of a range of gamma emitting radio-isotopes. The ion chamber has recently been automated by replacing the AAEC type 292 Recycling Discriminator timer module and model 43 teletype printer with the HP86B computer HP-59501B voltage programmer and HP-6181C current source. The program 'MEASION' running on the Deltacom IBM AT clone calculates the radioactivity with full error statements from the ion chamber measurements. Each of these programs is listed and discussed.
