  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    EDITED BECAUSE I THINK FOLKS ARE MISSING THE POINT: I believe we are on the brink of war and civil war. We are living in the last days. I think folks are missing the point: Both these pastors saw the coming of covid and the riots and are now predicting extreme dark violence and eventually...
  2. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    I read a lot about the danger of an EMP attack from North Korea. Some guy in the Pentagon even wrote a book on it. I'm going to take the contrarian position and say it's currently unlikely for the following reasons: 1) According to the rocket scientists, Dictator Good Hair doesn't currently...
  3. The Tech Zone
    Hey Guys and Gals, I just thought I would see what everyone thought about the EMP Shield. Here is the website: https://www.myempshield.com It's techy so, figured this may be the thread to get opinions. I'd love to hear the good, bad and ugly. I've already seen some great stuff and nasty...
  4. Vehicles & Transportation
    I've been reading about how many of you want an older car or truck with simple electronics, so it won't be very vulnerable to the electromagnetic pulse that accompnies a nuclear explosion. I wonder if it is very difficult to protect a newer vehicle from EMP? I know our military has many planes...

    Is an EMP Attack on America Possible? The following information was gleaned from this site. http://www.businessinsider.com/north-korean-emp-attack-the-dark-possibility-2017-7 If an EMP attack did take place, it would be beyond anything we have seen before. The Commission to Assess the Threat...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I don't think anybody knows, but any guesses or hard info? Naturally I wouldn't expect much of it to survive.
  7. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Hey all, I was freaking out a bit over the two North Korean satellites and started doing some research. I eventually came to the conclusion that the satellite risk seems quite low, not because it isn't possible (it is), but because it would be far far easier to hit the US in other ways...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    At the end of a geology retreat, our conversations revolved around an EMP. We discussed short distance (size of a house) EMPs that we can make (though illegal, from disposable cameras) and I brought up the possibility of larger EMPs being released over major cities or communication byways. Then...
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Was just wondering if there was a massive EMP would your watch still run?
  10. General Discussion
    How resistant is a solar power bank to EMP? If it is vulnerable, is there any way to protect it or rebuild it if damaged? EMP has to be the greatest international military threat, e.g., launch from container ship off coasts. Think nut cases of Iran and Korea. Thanks.
  11. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    Calling all electrical engineers, HAM operators, or EMP shielding experts! ;) I have 8 Baofeng UV-5R radios. 2 of them we use around the farm. But the other 6 have just been sitting in their cardboard boxes . Figured it was time to protect them. So, I can pack 2 radios in a standard 1 gal...
  12. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I have purchased an 18x21 metal garage situated on an asphalt pad to park my car. Will this serve as a Faraday cage in case of an EMP? Do I need to do something special to make it one? Thanks.
  13. General Discussion
    On Thursday President Obama signed an executive order for "Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events" -- i.e. solar flares that cause an EMP. https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2016/10/13/executive-order-coordinating-efforts-prepare-nation-space-weather-events...
  14. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Just read an article about imminent solar storm activity at http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/715472/Solar-storm-Earth-break-Sky-TV-mobile-phones Anyone got info?
  15. Communications
    I've seen multiple threads here on the subject of Faraday cage bags for EMP protection, but I have a question that isn't covered in any of the threads I found: I would like to get a feel for whether or not there's a market for high-end bags that are designed to protect electronics like ham...

    Daily Caller comments on seven threats to our power grid. http://dailycaller.com/2016/01/10/top-7-threats-to-americas-power-grid/ "American homes, industries, and businesses are deeply dependent on reliable electricity, so threats to the consistent delivery of electricity put modern life...
  17. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    Why EMP? THE USA gov. EMP Commission Report states that 90% of Americans will die within one year. North Korea has successfully tested submarine launched ICBM'S capable of nuclear delivery. North Korea successfully launch satellite ICBM Iran (almost enough said) if they don't already have...

  19. General Discussion
    A thought occurred to me. There are so many possible threats out there, that seem to require in depth research and special educational background, that no 1 human could possibly hope to gain enough background knowledge to wade through all of the conflicting reports and arrive at true knowledge...
  20. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    In case of an EMP I would like my tractors, Gator, rototiller, maybe a spare freezer.... to be protected. I was thinking of maybe accomplishing this with a pole barn or large metal shed. I know if I'm using something it won't be protected, and am not in a financial position to have a spare of...
