Default Re: Faraday Cages (Build it!!)

Hi Swanny, yes i thought of the wall socket, but then thought, here in the uk our power comes from those hideous pylons, perfect antena for carrying such emp pulses, it ends at your house and if connected to the same earth then maybe all work would be lost to it.

A separate earth pole , allbeit copper pipe would be singular to a pylon and maybe would miss a lot of the emp. Pipe connected, pipe not connected will make no difference i suppose until maybe a threat as such arrises. Certainly makes no difference to a radio or mobile as i just tried it.

Thanks for your thoughts though.
