    Any new ideas in protecting electronics from EMP besides layering in
    newspaper and aluminum foil?


    Or dare I say, using data from 1960?

    I'm looking for a way to protect modern electronics from EMP. Thanks
    in advance.

    "layering" with newspaper and aluminum foil will not work, unless you
    use tomorrow's edition of the New York times and Genuine, Certified
    Reynolds(TM) brand of aluminum foil.
    NOTE: it is an absolute *must* that you have tomorrow's edition -
    meaning the edition that is available only the day after today, with no
    regard to the fact that it is always today.
    NOTE: it is also an absolute *must* that you have fully and complete
    certification of the aluminum foil in your possession at all times, and
    that the certification be notarized by every notary in the US - else the
    foil is no good.

    I forgot to mention the aluminum foil helmet.... can't make 'em out of
    tin foil anymore, stores only sell aluminum!

    On a more serious note, I do have a tube receiver. Just getting more
    and more difficult finding 22 volt batteries...(at least for me it is
    anyway).

    For the B supply?
    Isn't that a bit low, and wasn't 45V more commonly used?
    Perhaps you could cobble up something with standard 9V batteries or
    from what i see in the Mouser catalog #624 pg 1532, 573-27A (12V, 0.303
    dia by 1.10 high) which is the smallest of the two 12V batteries a 9V is
    also there).

  10. There you go! You've just found a market for all that used tin plated
    steel inside scrap electronics. ;-)
