  1. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    I think we all understand that although the probability of an EMP attack is very low, it does rise above zero as tensions with North Korea escalate. I think we also understand that the probability of long-term, post-EMP survival is very low. In light of some of these things and in spite of...

    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.
  3. Urban Survival
    Does anyone use any faraday cage products? For instance, I've been looking into buying a few things from this small company called Silent Pocket. They have these neat looking tablet sleeves and phone cases that can block all wireless signals like WiFi, bluetooth, GPS etc. I can get paranoid...

  5. 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...

    Hey there, Just a post that will explain how to go about building an effective faraday cage for electronics. Electronics that range from phones & tablets to desktop computers and laptops. The process explained below is for a small faraday cage for things like phones and radios. That said, the...
  7. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    I've been recently thinking about Faraday cages and what sizes people get for certain electronics but I was thinking is there a size to where the cage starts to attract and carry a charge during an emp/solar event rather than dissipate or let the wave bend around? For those thinking that size...
  8. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    Hi everyone, Ok, so for the past week I've been searching around both here and on google, about where to buy, or how to build a faraday cage. Honestly, doing that I think has just made me more confused on the subject. It seems a lot of people have a lot of different views on how a faraday cage...
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've heard so much about faraday cages that I got a little tired of the misinformation, so I have decided to explain why they're not, as designed, suitable for EMP protection. I first have to explain how this electromagnetic stuff works as it relates to EMP, then I visit faraday cages and make...

    This might be just stupid, but here goes. I've read pre 1982 pennies are made with copper. If I glued a layer or two into or on a shoebox, or whatever, would that work to make a small EMP proof box? Or is the copper content not high enough? Could it be used as a layer. Something like tinfoil...
  11. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Basics of EMP for Dummies It has become evident there is much confusion as to the scale of electromagnetic pulse effect. For the purposes of this discussion I will avoid the social impact and affect of an EMP event. Instead I would like to help wash away some of the ignorance of the manner...
  12. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    I decided to try a little test of an EMP of sorts with some aluminum foil, the microwave and a couple electronics. First I took an old xbox disk, wrapped it in paper, then wrapped it in aluminum foil. I popped it into the microwave and nuked it for a combined 35 seconds. It was fully intact...
