Compton suppression system was established to accurately and precisely measure low-level radiation during in-situ measurement of sites. HPGe detector was selected as the main detector and plastics scintillation detector was selected as the guard detector. Using 137 Cs source, while changing the height(h) and width(w) about plastic scintillation detector the gamma spectrum was simulated using the Monte Carlo method. Also each was performance evaluated using reduction factor (RF). As a result the
