YES, to an extent, an old microwave oven may be re-purposed as a Faraday cage against EMP (electro magnetic pulse). A Faraday cage by its very definition does not have to be grounded to reflect or keep out electro-magnetic waves (they normally are not grounded). If a microwave oven is used as an EMP shield (Faraday cage),I would suggest that the cord be cut and removed to prevent it from becoming an antenna. Not a bad idea, but in theory, not necessary given the existing shielding of the chamber itself.
Bought some aluminum attic radiant barrier foil a few years back, it’s like heavy duty aluminum foil with threads inside for strength. I regret to inform you that a microwave oven is only partially effective as a Faraday cage, something you can test for yourself.


In any event, there are better methods of do-it-yourself Faraday cage design, as you mention. I wouldn’t have expected the shielding on a microwave oven to do anything but protect the user from the oven. If I remember correctly, 1) there is no screen over the magnetron’s output port (duh!) and 2) there is high-voltage DC applied to the magnetron. Go to any old appliance store and buy old single door refrigerator or freezer, , take off the rubber gasket, so that the door metal contacts the main shell, then line the inner walls completely with cardboard or styrofoam, place your electronic on cardboard covered shelves, you can easily store radio’s ,lap tops,etc. A corollary question is this: How would the generator connected to that Automatic Transfer Switch fare in an EMP event?
I suspect what has happened is that the microwave manufacturers have cheapened their units, and provide just enough RF protection to keep your eyeballs from being fried. Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. As long as the holes in the screen are smaller than the wavelength of the frequencies you are trying to protect against, screen works just as well as a solid piece of metal. In the case of a nuclear detonation, the electromagnetic pulse consists of a continuous frequency spectrum. Since the holes of the screen mesh of a microwave oven are small compared to the wavelength of the microwave itself, little radiation can leak out.
I do know that cell phones operate at lower frequencies, however I would assume that a microwave shielding would also block lower frequencies by default – since the microwave frequencies themselves are higher and require smaller holes in the screen. Since EMP is nothing more than a high energy RF pulse, any Faraday cage which will shield you from EMP will also shield you from RF. I am also somewhat surprised that the microwave shielding seems to be apparently somewhat ‘tuned’ or restricted?


What I found is that supposedly, a microwave is permitted to radiate up 0.25 Watts of power. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
A Faraday cage is an enclosure formed by conducting material or by a mesh of such material. Most of the energy is distributed throughout the lower frequencies between 3 Hz and 30 kHz. There are also mesh screens on the sides of the oven cavity, one to protect the oven light while allowing it to shine into the cavity, the other to permit ventilation. The article states that most of the energy will occur below 30 KHz and while I suspect this frequency may depend on the actual type of EMP involved, this is still close enough to the AM band to use an AM radio for testing.
The microwave oven does apparently restrict these frequencies, but the attenuation itself in dB is unclear.
A microwave oven’s very design is to enclose the electro-magnetic radiation of microwaves, and keep them from getting out.
However the first effects of nuclear detonation are the very-high-frequency pulses, in the microwave range, and can work their way into Faraday cages if there are cracks, seams, or vents. Simply tune the radio to the strongest local station and put it in whatever you are testing.
We all know that commercial companies don’t put anything more than what they have to for fear of reducing their profit, so it would reasonable to assume microwave ovens are probably between 40 and 50 dB of shielding. I just did this with my microwave and while the signal did get rather noisy, it could still be heard, even with the door closed. Its not bad, but it just isn’t enough to fulling attenuate the AM station to the point that it is inaudible.
Most effective, good old aluminum foil and ammo cans, even with the rubber seal, although you do need to make sure that any metal like an antenna does not touch the foil or the steel of the can.
