How To Build A Nested Faraday Cage - Protect your Electronics From An EMP

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:

During the past few days, I've urged my fellow radio amateurs to protect their ham stations and other sensitive electronic equipment from power surges, RFI, and EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse).  EMP can come from a variety of natural and human-made sources.  EMP can damage your antennas and transceivers if you don't take steps to protect them. Fortunately, you can lessen the danger of EMP damage by building a "Faraday Cage".

In this well-paced and thoroughly detailed tutorial, "Reality Survival & Prepping" discuses how to build a nested Faraday Cage for your electronic equipment.

Here's a list of some materials needed for this project:

"This faraday cage is using a nested system with multiple different materials that should protect your electronics from a wide range of the electromagnetic pulse frequencies. Here is my video on 17 Misconceptions about EMP's: Copper Mesh: Aluminum Foil: 3M Metallic Tape: Copper Tape: Gallon Zip Lock Bags: Faraday Defense Bags: Behrens 10 Gallon Galvanized Steel Can: Glad Press N Seal Wrap: Quart Size Zip Lock Bags: Support this channel by purchasing your gear through my Amazon link! It won't cost you anything and helps me out a lot! Amazon Affiliate Link:"
Please build a Faraday cage for your ham gear.  It's not a matter of "if" but "when" a "Carrington Event" will strike.  Hopefully, you'll be prepared.

Thanks for joining us today.
