Surviving EMP – Faraday Box Testing – Part 3

This is part three 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. Relavent links: The Preparedness Podcast Mini-Guide: Surviving EMP [Kindle Edition] ebook … Continue reading

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

EMP Means Hand Tools

Last night at the Prep 101 meeting, Fred and I were giving a class on the effects of EMP, or Electromagnetic Pulse.  Specifically, we were discussing what EMP is, what the effects are if it were to happen, and what you can do to protect your gear from it. I’ll be getting into these topics later, both on the podcast and this site in the not-too-distant future, but one of the members had a question that showed he was connecting the dots.  His question was, “If the pulse of the EMP is going to take out the power grid, should … Continue reading

Russian Nukes in Cuba, Again?

Here’s a piece of disturbing news. It’s yet unclear whether this is true or not, but it does give one reason to pause and consider it. Report: Russia Moves Nuclear Missiles to Cuba Back in the ’80s, I began my life of preparedness because of the threat of Russian nukes.  It was the single biggest threat that we had, for even the natural disasters were less severe back then.  Jump ahead 25 years and it seems we’re right back to that point, only now in addition to the threat of nuclear war, we also have to be concerned with terrorism, … Continue reading
