I like that latter one.  Are you describing something that looks
like an atom with a few protons and a few electrons in orbit?
The reason I like it is that it is a nice generic Electrical
symbol that APRS users might find a variety of uses for.  Yes,
it could be used for radioation detetors, but also for other
thinigs (kind of watering it down I guess, but making it more
useful?)
