Surviving EMP – Faraday Box Testing – Part 2

This is part two of my three-part video series on testing Faraday shielding. In this video, I show how many layers of aluminum foil it takes to successfully shield a 50,000 watt AM signal, while standing at the base of the stations antenna array. Be sure to check out Part 1 for an explanation on why this testing is far superior than using a cell phone or ‘walkie-talkie’ for testing the shielding effectiveness. This was part of the research I did for the The Preparedness Podcast Mini-Guide: Surviving EMP [Kindle Edition] ebook.

Surviving EMP – Faraday Box Testing – Part 1

When I was testing different Faraday containers, I took three videos of what worked and demonstrated it shielding 50,000 watts of AM radio signal. A strong AM radio signal, is a good test of EM/RF shielding, because the properties of medium wave allow it to easily penetrate most materials. Since we want to shield against high-levels of EM waves, if you can block a strong AM signal when standing at the base of the station’s antenna, you know you have decent shielding. in this first video, I show how nesting Faraday shielding with aluminum foil and a metal trash can … Continue reading

What To Store In Your Faraday Cages?

Here is a list of suggested items that you may want to consider placing into a Faraday cage or Faraday Protection Unit (FPU) to protect them from the destructive effects of EMP. Note: There is a two-part podcast series that explains all of this in great detail.  Be sure to listen to it by starting with the first part of EMP and EMP Protection. Be sure to check out the videos I did that demonstrates shielding against a 50,000 watt AM signal, and the Surviving EMP Mini-Guide: The Preparedness Podcast Mini-Guide: Surviving EMP [Kindle Edition] ebook Testing Faraday shielding for … Continue reading

EMP Preparedness

EMP, or Electromagnetic Pulse, is one of the threats that we face from anyone who has a nuclear bomb and can lob it high enough into the air. While it’s a little more complex than that, the basic premise is that it’s far too easy for our enemies to annihilate our way of life by employing just one weapon. This article is about how you can protect your equipment from EMP.  For more information about EMP and the associated dangers, please see this post: What is EMP?  You can also listen to the EMP and EMP podcast for a complete … Continue reading
