Well actually the Faraday cage doesn't have to be grounded. You could be in a floating cage.
Here is the MIT study:
I have to assume this is measurement error. I doesn't matter that the network analyzer cost $250k (which I doubt). The thing to bear in mind with
instrumentation is that no matter what you do, you get a number. But that doesn't mean the test was done correctly.
When they test chambers for TEMPEST, they put the source inside the chamber and measure on the outside. The MIT guys did it the other way. In theory,
both should work, but I know the government does it as I stated. Often this works to the bases disadvantage since that means someone is on base with a
spectrum analyzer. You never know what they might find.
Incidentally, there is no mode-s on that NASA B-52, so I can't trace it remotely. But Edwards did do some directed energy tests in the past south of
