btw, a very simple test to test the efficiency of your Faraday cage is to put your cellphone inside, and see if you get a signal (or try to phone it). if you do, sorry, not good enough. Next, put your FM radio on a very strong station, and put it inside your Faraday cage. If it still receives the signal, not good enough. Then put your radio on a very strong SW station, and repeat the procedure, and then on a strong AM station. To test the cage at 2.4HGz, put your laptop inside and see if you can still pick up your Wi-Fi access point. If you have a level meter on your radio, you should be able to get an indication of the isolation of your Faraday cage at that frequency. If you have a smartphone, or know the bluetooth commands for your cellphone, you should be able to interrogate its field strength meter too, the same for your wifi module.
If your cage passes these tests with flying colors, congratulations, you have a Faraday cage that works from MW to microwaves (2.4HGz). It just might protect your stuff from the RF part of the EMP. If it doesn't, well, back to the design board.

They really don't need a plan to invade us; just a motive for seeing us become introverted for a decade or two.
But they have to know we'd counter back with the same...
So, instead of MAD, it's MAP (Mutually Assured Primitiveness)?
