Measurements have been made on 60Co gamma rays from a point source and on 6 MV roentgen rays from a linear accelerator with a wall-less proportional counter. Single event spectra have been measured in sites of 0.5-2 mum in diameters stimulated with a tissue equivalent gas. Calculations of the relative variance in LET are performed and compared with the relative variance of the measured distributions for estimates about the straggling contribution.
