it is possibleto protect equipment from EMP. its just very expensive due to materials required. I see no reason why someone sent to detonate emp would not have emp-protected gear. Seeing the ******** of money 'muricans spend on military.

When they say that the electronics are down, you can hear that it's not by intercom. they're yelling it so loud that you can hear it in the map.

You know what, I just might...

you should

Army infantry for me, I have much respect for the marines though
User avatar #30 to #29 - foreverxaxanon (02/04/2013) [-]
Cool. I'm doing Marine Infantry.

you already taken your asvab and been to MEPS?
User avatar #32 to #31 - foreverxaxanon (02/04/2013) [-]
Nah i'm 16. But when i turn 17 i'm going to a recruiter.
User avatar #33 to #32 - thepandaking (02/04/2013) [-]
you probably already have but think hard about it. It's a big decision. My best friend just left a couple weeks ago to San Diego for bootcamp, it's some tough **** there.
User avatar #34 to #33 - foreverxaxanon (02/04/2013) [-]
Yeah i know. I've thought about it really hard. And I've done tons of research too.
User avatar #35 to #34 - thepandaking (02/04/2013) [-]
that's good, it's good you know your stuff before getting into it.

Vacuum tube equipment is not damaged by EMP. And older point-contact transistors might be immune to it, too, I don't remember. But there are definitely radios out there that are impervious to EMP.

Finnish defense forces have so outdated equipments that even EMP doesn't work... No kidding I know it because my training was to be messenger...

MFW everyone is saying you need some kind of special plating or a Faraday cage to EMP proof something.   
   
You can use 						*************					 tinfoil. Besides where the 						****					 are you going to get a Faraday cage?

You can make a Faraday cage by making a box of metal duh..
User avatar #22 to #21 - thedarkestrogue ONLINE (02/04/2013) [-]
"A Faraday cage's operation depends on the fact that an external static electrical field causes the electric charges within the cage's conducting material to be distributed such that they cancel the field's effect in the cage's interior."
So you can make a special cage that conducts in a very specific way without being trained to do so?

You'll be suprised how easy it is once you read a guide on how to do it. Helps if you have experience with engineering.
User avatar #37 to #23 - thedarkestrogue ONLINE (02/04/2013) [-]
yes but not everyone is an engineer.
User avatar #38 to #37 - joeyliquid ONLINE (02/04/2013) [-]
F.Y.I. You can make one out of wrapping aluminum foil around stuff.
User avatar #39 to #38 - thedarkestrogue ONLINE (02/04/2013) [-]
Thats what my first comment said, yes.
I was talking about a legit perfectly engineered Faraday cage. You can't just make one of those.
User avatar #18 to #16 - Pharonix (02/04/2013) [-]
the FBI carries them, it's what they put your phone in so you can't remotely nuke it.
so why can't the army have them, it would come in useful to protect potentially useful information.
User avatar #19 to #18 - Pharonix (02/04/2013) [-]
meant to say *it could be useful*
User avatar #15 - thedarkestrogue ONLINE (02/04/2013) [-]
You can EMP proof shortwave radios.
I see nothing wrong here.
#12 - anonymous (02/04/2013) [-]
radio waves are naturally occuring, emp won't effect it.
#9 - ohp (02/04/2013) [-]
They used one of these
#25 to #9 - anonymous (02/04/2013) [-]
Pair of these*

God no how many times do i have to tell you this?
When an emp goes of in call of duty you can achually hear that some guy is shouting it rather that announcing it over radio.
Go check it out yourself

Emp goes off


Only effects the enemy teams tech
#13 to #7 - ratstroke (02/04/2013) [-]
it is possible for tech to survive emps google faradays cage,plus, its a game

Dur retard because theyre only jamming your radar not your communications

Every piece of military hardware has been shielded from EMPs since very early in the Cold War. Just another video game logical fallacy.
#3 - anonymous (02/04/2013) [-]
A farday cage would prevent this or copper mesh covering it

There are ways of preventing an emp from affecting things, I think a guy mentioned below, some special kind of plating
#11 to #2 - zzzapped (02/04/2013) [-]
Yeah, most Army's have EMP proof stuff.
Mainly because a nuke causes an EMP and a high orbit detonation could **** up a huge area (half the US or similar)
User avatar #1 - actionmastermegatr (02/03/2013) [-]
Well if a radio is old enough to have vacuum tubes instead of transistors I don't think it would be affected, also if any radio is in in a Faraday cage when an EMP goes off it should still work.
User avatar #4 to #1 - clvld (02/04/2013) [-]
Dr. Faraday put mediums into the cage often times to talk to the ghosts he believed to live in his home.

Yeah, a lot of clever people were bat **** mental. Freud was a coke snorter, Tesla supported the idea of selective breeding for people, Einstein slept with his cousin, Stephen Hawking once wanted to kill all life on earth, (though that was only because someone plunged a usb stick into him with a virus on it).
