Re: Faraday cage for hand held GPS

My whole boat is a Faraday cage. Problem solved!

Can't sleep? Read for fast relief. Can't read? Avoid, because it's just personal reviews of sea books.

Re: Faraday cage for hand held GPS

This link will provide some excellent material from an outstanding source of lightning protection. NOAA/NWS provides this guidance. After 45 years in Land Mobile Radio, I can tell you that what Polyphaser and NWS says is true. You can't protect anything 100% from a lightning strike. All you can do is try your best, but sometimes even your best is not enough. One only need look at the energy released from a lightning and the temperature. More facts here.
