An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is a short burst of energy caused by either solar flares or a nuclear blast. Because of this ability, EMP weapons have been created with the aim to destroy the enemy’s technological capabilities.
This fear has caused many preppers to invest in a Faraday Cage, giving them the means to protect their most valuable technology-based survival equipment. A Faraday Cage, simply put, is a metal container with a lining on the inside that does not conduct electricity. In order for it to protect any electronics you place in it, the inside of the metal container must be lined with a protective cover so that your electronics cannot touch any metal. Just remember that the larger the metal container, the more protective lining you will have to invest in for your Faraday Cage to work. Let’s say you decide on making one out of a metal trash can since they are easy to find and relatively cheap while still being able to hold a fair amount of contents. We’ve established that you are opting for a metal trash can (for the purpose of this article). Now that you have your container, you must line the inside of it with enough cardboard so that no contents will be able to touch any metal. Any electronics you consider vital in case of an emergency should go inside your soon-to-be Faraday Cage. If you want to take extra precautions, you can opt to wrap your gathered electronic in heavy gauge aluminum foil.

Your standard 31-gallon metal trash can will be able to keep a lot of electronics safe and is a favorite container among many preppers. EMPs are a threat to modern society and many preppers base their entire bug out plans on the event of an EMP striking their city or even the majority of the United States. This simple project can be finished in under 30 minutes and will help insure that your valuable electronics will be safe from being fried by an EMP blast, which would happen without warning. In this first video, I show how nesting Faraday shielding with aluminum foil and a metal trash can can be an effective shield against EM and RF energy. There are a lot of questions that I am being asked about how to protect your gear from EMP.

Isn’t it interesting that NORAD is moving back in and calling it home?  Do they know something we don’t know?
No one truly knows the risk of an EMP attack (either man-made or natural) actually occurring.  However, based on the actions and statements of our government, it should definitely warrant your attention.  In addition, regardless of the probability, can you imagine how an EMP might upset your Bug-In or Bug-Out plans?
Are you planning to drive long distances?  Imagine bugging out without a motor vehicle.  Do you have supplies at your location already or were you anticipating on loading up your vehicle? Do you have a means to heat your home since HVAC is electronic and cannot push air through your home? You should avoid any water bath canner or pressure cooker than has a rubber gasket as Faraday cages need to have a continual metal covering.

For some of my other EMP recommendations, as well as blue prints for a large EMP cabinet using sheet metal, refer to this article “Preparing for Solar Storms or EMPS”.
No More Censorship, Unlike YouTube and Others!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.
There are many webpages and videos showing the testing of Faraday cages using cell phones and relatively weak handheld radios (5 watts or less).
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. Unfortunately, these are poor tests of whether any shielding is working, for a variety of reasons (detailed elsewhere on this site and in the ebook). 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 stationa€™s antenna, you know you have decent shielding. You need to keep in mind that EMP is a a massively powerful pulse of EM radiation that is not easily blocked. Ita€™s the lower frequencies that are difficult to block, and testing in the AM band is a far better test than using a cell phone or VHF transceiver.
