17-102617 IMtoMR: Responding to a NKorea EMP attack

Food for thought: Be grateful for all this calm, the storm may be about to break –
earlier this week Business Insider and other outlets wrote about North Korea claiming its nuclear weapons capabilities include EMPs (electromagnetic pulse) weapons, transported via warheads above the earth’s atmosphere, emit rapid and invisible bursts of electromagnetic energy that could jam an entire continent’s entire power grid, phone lines, and internet. EMPs would jam the US electrical grid and destroy the online and telephone infrastructure that currently supports the US’s 320 million population. Airline and air traffic control electronics would also be destroyed.
Today, the American Radio Relay League posted a report that their members whom are part of the public/private partnership called MARS (Military Auxilary Radio System) will participate in a communication interoperability test from November 4 – 6. The stated reason for the test is to respond to being hit by a huge Coronal Mass Ejecta (CME) from the sun which coincidentally is equivalent to an EMP. (recall the movie INDEPENDENCE DAY when the aliens did the same)
