It's my understanding that you also need to isolate anything inside the faraday cage from the metal insides of the cage.Thanks for the link.
I use a 30 Cal ammo can. It works to isolate my Samsung 5G nicely.
I've had to put my cell phone in a metal box many times before entering certain facilities.
An EMP would be welcome. The schnitt that I care about will not be affected by one.It's my understanding that you also need to isolate anything inside the faraday cage from the metal insides of the cage.
If you're just tossing your phone, radios, etc. into an ammo can, then an EMP could "jump" from the metal can to your devices and fry 'em.
Because some people believe that their phones are listening in on everything they say, and/or tracking everywhere they go.Excuse this honest question, but why are we wrapping our phones in foil now?
I must have missed this one.
Yeah, and they’re desperate for money so they’re pretty....forward.
Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they aren't watching me.Because some people believe that their phones are listening in on everything they say, and/or tracking everywhere they go.
Gotcha, thought it was something like that.Because some people believe that their phones are listening in on everything they say, and/or tracking everywhere they go.
I was more interested in the results for EMP/CME scenarios. I am pretty sure I am already on some list somewhere as a "person of interest", and I live alone so 99% of the time the only thing my phone will hear is me cussing because I dropped something or stubbed my toe on something. As for where I go - it is Costco, Winco, the chiro and the mailbox.
The things I want to protect from EMP/CME are my phone, computers, TX/RX and a few other things. GPS is ok, but since I don't plan on traveling and spend 99% of my time at home, probably not necessary.Gotcha, thought it was something like that.
I'd be more interested in protecting my handheld gps and perhaps the gps unit in my truck.
But maybe that's unnecessary now that Russia is going to blow up our gps satellites.
I got a compass around here somewhere.......
Pandemic + EMP/CME == ???I I only have 2 things to say:
Corona. Virus. . Only X10 next time. http://www.empcommission.org/reports.php
For those who need it to keep bad guys away, well, that is making more sense to me than the EMP threat I once feared so much. Will not be breaking out the extra electronics from their EMP tomb (other than periodic recharging them) however. Just in case. It was a very low probability event then, likely lower now. There is no defense against a well planned viral load introduced later by a bad actor other than stay as healthy as one can and hope that a defense can be initiated (like a vaccine) before it takes you out.
