The only problem with the test is a EMP/CME energy is much broader in scope and most if not all consumer products are in theory and with limited testing. The closes we consumers can get to real world testing is with lightening, even with the pentagon's money it''s protection of sensitive equipment is in theory. It's why I havent invested money in an all out protection for my cars/trucks/radios etc... I have a metal garbage $25 bucks, that's my protection and investment.Personally I am not prepared for any type of EMP, but I just ran across this and thought it might be helpful.
Here, here Robin! I’ve been prepping from the beginning for an EMP. Never gave economic collapse enough attention. Now? I don’t see how we avoid an economic collapse. The big question is, who will be in power? If we have a Marxist in the WH, they will come after our guns. Count on it!From the beginning of my serious prepping days, I thought an EMP was our greatest threat, now I am leaning more to the economic collapse scenerio.
It seems to be unfolding as we speak. I have been removing my few dollars out of the stock market before the election happens. I believe that no matter who wins, we will have immediate chaos, but if Biden wins, it will be long term conditions.
I can't believe that the virus didn't wake people up more and get them prepping, but they are waiting for another stimulus check to fix everything. The human race amazes me. So dependent on others.
|Modern integrated circuits are about a million times more sensitive to prompt E1 pulses than the early-1960s era electronics.|
|Electronic control systems are effectively, according to the EMP commission, the Achilles’ heel of our power delivery network.|
|The bottom line is that, indeed, our infrastructure is vulnerable to significant E1 and E3 pulses. While significant E3 would not be expected from a low yield weapon, it would be expected from a solar storm.|
The above is from The Space Review. link should be on one of the pages, I posted this before, this actually have 2 pages, I posted the second page here not the first. I have lot of scientific books on the matter with a great deal of information.
totally agree. the only post EMP power needs i am planning for up at the acreage is the water system and the fridge/freezer and few small items (commo,, etc). i will have some spare parts in a cage for those two major items. the rest we will adjust, God willingAn EMP doesn't disrupt or destroy in a perfect 360deg from the blast. Too many things have to come together for it to be truly effective, We DON'T know the real impact so do what you can do regarding a EMP but don't waste a lot of money and time with it, if you have a choice between food/water and that of hardening the electronics choose food/water but as preppers we should always be prepared for no power and transportation and treat as expected and prep around it.
We have always lost power in winter and it would be down for week or two, winter gets so bad we can't drive meaning we are stuck on the property for two sometimes 3 months out of the year, it is expected so we prep for it. We humans have done quite well without power and transportation outside our on two feet for thousands of years and we still thrived, adapted and overcome many dire challenges, don't dumb yourselves down in thinking an EMP is the end all, it's not, it's just another challenge we need to overcome.
