Reception for cell phones and DirecTv have been very bad last few days here, lots of interuptions

We had some of that too with the wireless FIOS not much, but some. Son's cell in NJ blipped on of a couple times.

Increasingly Powerful Solar Storms Could Disrupt Technology on Earth

By Jeremy B. White | August 10, 2011 10:15 PM EDT
Power grids, GPS systems and satellites could be among the technologies affected by surges of energy released by the sun's swelling magnetic field, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

U.S. scientists say there may also be disruption of power supply for years together or even decades as geomagnetic currents attracted by the storm could debilitate the transformers.

The sun is essentially a ball of gas with a magnetic field at its core, and that field regularly expands and contracts in what is dubbed the "solar cycle." It is currently about a year into a strengthening phase, which is expected to peak around July 2013. As a result, the increasingly volatile magnetic field will likely cause more eruptions on the sun's surface.

"The consequence of a stronger magnetic field is it becomes concentrated in certain parts of the sun and it becomes unstable," said Joe Kunches, a space scientist with the NOAA. "These contorted and somewhat uncomfortable magnetic fields want to return to a more familiar state and in doing so they give off energy."

Such eruptions come in two parts. The first is a quick burst of energy, known as a solar flare, that Kunches likened to a bolt of lightning for its sudden and quickly dissipating intensity. Those flares signal an event called a "coronal mass ejection."...

Great Info as usual. I had already made a small faraday cage for a radio and batteries out of a cookie tin and some foam. Something like that would also work for cell phones and flash drives I think. Now I'm wondering if a file cabinet will work for the computers. Certainly worth a try to save the information. I hadn't thought it thru all the way before.

Thanks
Sunny

Just think of how much info you can store on flash drives to recall later on a laptop

exactly. You could have survival guides and books. Pictures of edible plants. Etc..

I have some long range walkie talkies, and might be able to communicate with local family.   ed

What brand do you have? I'm thinking about getting four, and not sure which ones to look at...

Thanks,

bit late in the answer but some one asked bout a car in a concrete garage?

Answer: yes any electronics such as the hei spark coil, and starter components will be fried, and any electronic instrumentation but keep a spare coil, starter, battery, and series of bulbs and you should be able to revive any carberated car to driving, but also get the alcohol fuel stabilizer as it's more likely you'll be brewing fuel, over getting it @ a gas station.

As for the cell phones and the loss of towers, they will be useless as will most if not all land line phones they carry a charge so likely to get it with the rest of the tech, ham radio's are the tool of last resort, but most area's require licensing of said equipment so if able pick one up and just store it, after Chaos there will be time to learn how to use it.

i stored 3 hd's and 2 mother boards in my cage so i can keep computer tech alive for the above security and educational reasons. it's a cheep way to keep some of the luxury of today after. i also have 3 solar panels 120w,  4 alternators, a box of dc volt servo's, 25 timers and some tech tools i will need in mine. It's only 6ftx2.5ft and bout 3ft high, i keep a bed on it for guests in my basement, it's sealed so other then the move (recent) i have had no worries about the contents.

worse case scenario i can hopefully barter the contents for seeds or food if i had to as I'm sure computers will be far more rare then electricity which will be scarce.

Sorry I have been out for a few days medical and comp. issues. the cookie tin should work well you could also layer it with cloth then foil. the file cabinet most likely will not work well, because of the long lines along the drawers. Most damage will only be caused during the day dawn to dusk. No one can tell you 100% if you gear will be safe or not because no one know how bad it will get.

 A lot of people will make the fatal mistakes listed, loss, and insufficient protection.
It is best to use a small stasis unipole on a double screen configuration for real protection.
Earth ground only provides a differential between atmosphere and earth, nothing more.
Therefore, an orientation between earth, atmosphere, and safe area/volume must be made.
This requires two cages.
First one is to shield, the idea of a faraday cage. However, this also has the limits of being oriented to whatever earth charges are going around, AND if it can handle the charge differences.
Make sure to offer a limiter circuit that allows a ground out of opposite polarity. After installing a power source, add a circuit that allows the use of earth ground as an opposing polarity with a reverse shunt to limit power surge. Exactly ring around the rosy as stated.
Second screen insulated and foil protected, needs to be oriented to itself internally. No allowance for charge differential at all. It needs to be insulated from the internal area using a shunt to the control field of the cage itself. Same as above, ring around the rosy...
This is The only way to use a faraday cage correctly.
In terms of living quarters and tinfoil hats...
A 'true' neutral environment requires that all fields be kept at a zero charge. Configuring a 'cage' that does this is not as simple as most think. Basically, all electronics are oriented to some level of charge no matter where they are, there is always a charge of some sort.
So, again, a complete 'insulatory condition' must be made.
Figure a human charge component and resultant mental activity charge as the zero point.
A capacitive reading of those to be in the cage is recommended. This allows maintenance at a most correct level. There is no 'correct' or 'right' level that fits all.
The same configuration should be used for body and personal armor, the tinfoil hat, etc.
Be aware that you will need to drag a ground along with you, see above earth orientation.
Frequency and radiation also enter into this.
Higher the freq, the worse the effects. At a certain point, frequency becomes a radiation factor, anything above 500Kc, basically.
The other part of this is wave form.
At a certain point, a wave can only be 'read' as a beam, our limited technology, etc.
This is where, IF one decides to really protect, you will need to use a phaee adjustment of a three way signal into a three phase waveform 120 Deg apart from each other. Each needs to be strong enough to allow a blead over that covers at least 20% of each others field area.
This offers frequency protection from zero wave (ELF) through gamma. 
Get used to a straw hat lined with foil and insulated with cloth and pvc.
Metal screen is not used much, so be ready to hunt for it. The rest of the things mentioned can be found at Radio Shack.
Good luck.
