Thoughts Regarding Faraday Cage Techniques For An EMP

Thoughts Regarding Faraday Cage Techniques For An EMP

As many of you know, an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) could end life as we know it in approximately one hundredth of a microsecond. Faster than the blink of an eye. While some may argue the likelihood of such an event, lets focus instead on the methods one might consider to protect their electronic equipment in…

EMP – Can This Happen?

EMP – Can This Happen?

Is the following scenario plausible? A well financed proxy terrorist group has struck the United States. They have successfully launched a modified Scud short range ballistic missile which was hidden inside a specifically and purposely designed shipping container positioned on top of ‘the stack’ aboard a freight ship. Many days ago it left from a…

High Altitude  EMP

High Altitude EMP

Any nuclear detonation above 25 miles will cause a high altitude EMP (electromagnetic pulse). A nuclear weapon detonated at an altitude of 200 miles could affect all unprotected electrical equipment within the continental United States. Nuclear weapons at that altitude could be detonated from a satellite, an intercontinental ballistic missile, or from a ‘Scud’ type…

After the EMP comes Nuclear Meltdown

After the EMP comes Nuclear Meltdown

An EMP (electro magnetic pulse), if strong enough (and regardless of the source – weaponized or solar), will potentially fry electronics and electronic systems within its invisible sphere of destruction. Many expert opinions and reports suggest that our electrical power grid could go down. A large weaponized nuclear EMP detonation (or group thereof) high in…

How To Protect A Portable Radio From EMP

How To Protect A Portable Radio From EMP

Protecting a portable Shortwave/AM/FM radio from an EMP (electro-magnetic-pulse) is (theoretically) fairly easy, and is a wise course of preventative action to take with a critical electronic piece of equipment like a radio which could provide you with critical news and information about an ongoing disaster…

Suspect Super-EMP Orbit Over United States

Suspect Super-EMP Orbit Over United States

Given the recent nuclear threats from North Korea directed at the United States, the satellite orbital map shown above indicates the track of the KMS 3-2 “satellite” this week from APR 8 – APR 16, which coincidentally just so happens to orbit along the eastern half of the U.S. Some believe or suspect that this…

North Korea Super-EMP Weapon

North Korea Super-EMP Weapon

North Korea may possess, or may be in the advanced stages of developing a Super EMP weapon. As the U.S., pundits and media continue to downplay every threat made by Kim Jong Un and North Korea, there is little doubt by some experts that they are working feverishly towards furthering their nuclear capability and a…

Will EMP Pulse Fry Anything Electronic NOT Plugged Into The Grid?

Will EMP Pulse Fry Anything Electronic NOT Plugged Into The Grid?

I recently received the following question regarding EMP effects: “What will happen to vehicles with electronic ignitions, a Chevy with an ignition module, but they are not hooked to a battery, with no path for electricity to follow, can it do damage? There may not be power on the grid, but what about a generator?…

Effects Of Long Term Power Outages

Effects Of Long Term Power Outages

The effects of long term power outages will be very severe to our modern way of life. Our human civilization has only existed with the ‘help’ of electricity for a VERY small slice of its overall timeline. It, and other factors, have enabled enormous population growth on the planet… to the point where if it…

Building A Faraday Cage

Building A Faraday Cage

A protective measure to protect electronic devices from the effects of EMP include the Faraday cage. ——————– (Update) The effectiveness of protection depends on several complicated factors including strength of EMP, your geo location from it, EMP altitude, and the gauge and type of metal you are using, and more… Suffice it to say that…
