    EMP protection, what I found

    All of what I've read about protecting your electronics from EMP as been conjecture, assumptions and myths mostly posted on forums, but I've seen nothing that gave a clear and concise answer, like, No an EMP will not take out your phone if you put it in a microwave, Faraday cage, Faraday bag, trash can .85843 nanoseconds before the EMP hits.
    So I decided to search until I found something a little more tangible.
    I was in about 8 pages on the Google search before I got past all the prepper, survival, gun and flashlight forums when I ran across this apparently declassified DHS 96 page document.
    The subjects seems to be a bigger GovCo secret then I thought it would be. I'm sure they've tested, at least against military equipment, they just don't want to share.

    Scientifically it is pretty far over my head and I don't read scientist speak no so well.

    I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number please.

    At one point in my career... Dang it! I can’t talk about it... But I can say I’ve seen some pretty sweet EMP hardened equipment up close and personal. One device was enclosed in a very sophisticated faraday cage. Was super cool!

    Anyway...

    Two of the best sources for EMP info that I have come across, including "Starfish Prime" which much of our current understanding is based off of.

    Paraquack,
    That's what I kept running into. I'm depending on that kind of info for a piece of gear working when I need it most.

    @Lunatic Wrench Thanks so much for your work in finding that DHS document. I hadn't seen that one before. It is a goldmine of EMP information.

    I've put a link to it in the Library so we can all find it when this post falls back into the board. Thanks again.

    @paraquack Hey para, FYI the last document on your list, "HEMP hardening" is a dead link.
