    Default Does anyone know how to protect electronics from a massive solar flare?

    All I know is that there is a construct called Faraday's cage

    You might also try an old microwave oven for small electronics. Doesn't mean that it's going to work 100%, it depends on the severity of the CME. We might all fry...

    it can be as simple as a metal trash can that has a grounding wire on it and it is inverted and you put electronic equipment in it along w batteries etc

    Do you close the lid before inverting?

    I think it is valuable to ask for this info, but depending on the duration and intensity of a massive CME from a solar flare, it may knock out the communication infrastructure (satellites, internet, radio stations, TV stations, etc.) It might be valuable info for protecting self-contained units, like walkie-talkies, maybe "ham" radio sets?

    Quote there is evidence that the very best EMP shields would be alternating layers of steel and aluminum or copper, with an insulating material separating the layers of metal. (This is how many electromagnetically shielded buildings are actually constructed.)

    Hello Daviddallany

    Can you be more specific about what you would like to protect electronics from?

    Best regards. JP

    Reading other's posts here it looks like you want protection against an EMP see link for an idea ...

    yes you must make sure the lid is sealed and the grounding wire is like a lightning rod in that the energy flows thru and into the earth

    If you intend to re-use a microwave oven to protect small equipment you must be careful to clip off the electrical cord at the back of the appliance, otherwise the electromagnetic wave will enter the oven through the cord. And I would seal off the stub with some heavy duty black electrical tape to insulate the copper wire inside from the open air, as well.

    LMAO! hehe a faraday cage should do it.

    But it is wiser to prepare your heart for the possibility that you may one day have to let go of all electronic goods.

    In the meanwhile The Internet is only a tool for you learning who and what you truly are.

    Any technology is just a temporary tool useful for your learning for a short duration of time

    Exactly, how can form exist when it's nature is emptiness. There is no eye, nor there an object that the eye sees.

    Default faraday cage?

    Has anyone constructed a faraday cage?

    Could a truck with a metal rear cabin be used?

    Though the panels will probably be made of aluminium, the basic structure,
    might have a steel frame, which could be steel bar re-enforced.

    Would it have to be earthed?
    Would it have to be buried in the ground?

    I like to know such things!!!

    Quote A Faraday cage or Faraday shield is an enclosure formed by conducting material or by a mesh of such material

    --- Wikipedia
    So, by definition you need a box or a mesh of some conductive material.

    Much more intriguing a question is: Why?

    As far as I know, no, you don't earth it, and no, it doesn't need to be underground to be a Faraday cage.

    However, rooms that are to be shielded from ALL sorts of different types of radiation are often deep underground not because it is a requirement for a Faraday cage, but because it shields OTHER types of interference.

    From what I have read, yes it is earthed, and any metal enclosed item will do, shed, file cabinet, tobaco tin anything. No it will not need to be underground.

    To test such a device, place a tuned radio inside along with a mobile phone, close the door and the radio should soon go silent and you should not be able to call the mobile and get a ring tone from it.
