EMP and what to put in a Faraday Gage

Articles: This appeared in Disaster Survival Magazine #7

In my last article, I promised to tell you how to build a Faraday cage to protect your electronics for the effects of EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse). This is simply a sealed metal container made from any conductive material lined with an insulator. I am not going to go into much detail on how to make the cage itself because there are tons of videos on You Tube about that but I am going to tell you about the limitations and uses for the cage. Know first that this is just an experiment and truly may or may not work for you. They do NOT make a bulletproof vest that will work 100% of the time against all bullets. There are too many variables (size of the bomb, location of the attack, solar flare or EMP device, etc.) to say with 100% certainty that this will work in all cases. For these reasons, a Faraday cage should be part of an integrated survival and protection plan with backups and redundancies. Continue reading EMP and what to put in a Faraday Gage

What if a 20 KT Bomb was detonated in Washington DC?

Okay so I am asked all the time what I think would be the most likely scenario for an NBC (Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical) attack to occur on US soil and what would be the effects. I answer them by saying a small tactical nuclear device, delivered in a Ryder truck, parked next to the capitol building in DC and detonated at noon on a Wednesday. Now, I don’t know why Ryder trucks, it just seems that terrorists prefer Ryder but a small tactical nuke just because there are so many of them and even a small one is around 20 Kiloton. A well-funded and well equipped terrorist group could even build a small nuclear device on their own. It would most likely be a terrorist group and detonating it at noon on Wednesday just to create the most casualties. Continue reading What if a 20 KT Bomb was detonated in Washington DC?
