I just had a 22kw home generator installed. It runs on natural gas. What material is best to use to build a cage? I understand about grounding it and no paint, and I live where rust is constant, it has to be light enough a 72yo can remove it for maintenances. Do they really work? Worth the trouble? The more I read, the more confused I get, help.
Why bother. your natural gas suppler will go down with the pulse
Depends on the source of your natural gas. Some wells free flow and others can be run on drip gas in pony motors.
From what I have read. Faradays are easy to build or buy. A example is an ash bucket or metal garbage can with a lid. It doesn't need to be heavy metals. The idea is the energy flows around the protected item.
Protected items inside the cage should be suspended from contact with the cage itself according to articles I have read on the topic. FWIW.
Interesting read is Ted Koppel's book "Lights Out". One particular item in the book is the attack on a major substation in Kali. Our infrastructure is vulnerable and has been a topic of national concern. From what I can gather, not much has been done to protect our system. Maybe the military has done something but it is not public info if they have.
An EMP attack is a real possibility and not pure bunk.
For your phone just get some pop tarts,us the wrappers and you are set.
At least you get to eat something.
Just tried mylar. Even the double layer was penetrated. Maybe it needs to be insulated from contact with the foil? I'll try that next. I was told that it needed to be grounded. I can see someone trying that in a restaurant in a mis wired socket. Yeeeow! 😄
