EMP and what to put in a Faraday GageIn 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
