    Hello, I am the General

    I have come here to ask how to negate an EMP and maybe you guys will be nice enough and I'll stick around for longer.

    Off the top of my head... an EMP acts on an electrical pulse so something like a Faraday Cage may do the trick. Now since a real EMP is both electrical & magnetic there may be some extra steps needed to also reduce the magnetic waves but that level of precaution may depend on the nature of the item being protected.

    I was just about to say that, Aston. :eek:
    Then again, if the EMP's strong enough, it should disable even those electrical items that are not running at the time its' detonated..........
