    Al,

    From what I remember from the book, EMP is the most difficult to provide protection. Especially in the case of modern enhanced or "super" EMP which supposedly the major powers now have. I do not have the book in front of me but from what I remember,grounding actually provides an "antenna" that can reduce the effectiveness of a Faraday cage. I have loaned out my book to a family member so I can't be sure. I will see if I can get it back and bring it tomorrow night and we can discuss before/after the meeting.

    Al,

    Basically, a Faraday cage is a metal box surrounding the object that you wish to shield. It may be either grounded or ungrounded. From publications that I have read, there seems to be some concerns that there is a difference between what kind of shielding would be most effective for protection against Solar events and what would be most effective against EMP. There is a great deal of info and misinfo on the net.

    I purchased "Solar Flare Survival: Protect Yourself And Your Electronics From The Sun And EMP's With Faraday Cages" from amazon and found it very useful: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1466421398/ref=oh_details_o05_s00_i01

    It explains in detail why grounding may or may not be advisable for EMP protection. It also provide info for layering protection by adding metallic protection and insulating protection inside a Faraday cage.

    Hope this helps

    Communications: Capability really depends on the event. EMP or Solar Storm presents additional problems for unshielded comm equipment. Otherwise HAM operations would probably be more available. Comments, ideas?
