I fully agree that "Faraday Cage" might be an inaccurate term for a car's body since you can still get cell phone reception. The cars metal body however would certainly change how the waves interact with the car, perhaps enhancing energy in some areas (due to reradiation) and perhaps shielding in others.

My condo is not a true "Faraday cage" either but I do have that old time metal reinforced plaster. I cannot get cell phone reception nor UHF/VHF. I can however get AM/FM. In a true Faraday cage I would get nothing. But that is not to say I am not slightly more protected.

I think that you got a point. My grand father (a physicist) was saying that a car was acting as a faraday cage and I'm sure he knew what he was talking about. however, with new cars, you won't find that much metal and i wander what the effects will be.

And you shall be reborn...

So hate to bring this up again but, what about ships?

Would a tanker/cargo/frigates electronics get fried the same way?

Car is not the same as military naval vessel I am thinking...also that test isn't really practical. If I am 10 feet away from an atomic blast, EMP damage is not a real concern.

I have to say I am impressed by the latest spambots. They even paraphrase now (rather than direct quoting) to avoid detection.

If you see a new poster with a link in their sig (removed in this case) let me know so I can investigate them.

I will be removing this user at a later date (I want to see if they come back to make any more posts or other adjustments)
