Not to be the gloomy guss here, but the verynature of an emp attack, makes any of these precautions worthless.
Emp travels.at C or the speed of light, so no warning is possible, and no reaction to it achievable.
One would have to keep said device in the cage at all times, just to be safe.
Your best bet is to keep an old ham or cb radio, anything nonsolid state. We are takking vacuum tubes here, just to be safe.
The telephone wires will melt off the poles, the wiring of your house will.melt, your hair will stand.on end just like and old b movie, your tv will
have a weird green glow for days after the amount of energy in the air. Depending on yur proximity to the emp.source, and its power.
This is a return to the stone age weapon.
Unlike the movies, you cannot just replace your.cars solenoid and it will.work again, in fact all the electronics will be fried.
This is the largest threat to the modern world.
Blame the fed .gov, it is the fcc that rewuiresall electronics to be open to this type of attack.
