    There aren't any.

    That's why this thread is full of theory, conjecture, and speculation. People love to fear the boogeyman.

    Anything that has a conductive circuit is affected. In many cases, an open circuit can be affected as well, depending on the resistance of the break and the strength of the pulse.

    Radio/telecomm, modern vehicles, power stations, computers, traffic control, plant controls, possibly generators, etc. If it plugs in or has batteries, it's susceptable.

    The only way to protect equipment is to harden it, or keep it in a Faraday cage. Being the only one with a working phone doesn't do you much good, and having the only working car will only last you so long. It's a big threat on a National/Regional scale, but I doubt doing much about it will do any good. Make sure your beans, bullets, and bandages are squared away, and that's your 80% solution with 20% effort.

    I would also add that in some strategically-minded circles, nukes would be most likely used by enemy states to attack infrastructure, rather than population centers. Leaving Chicago a smoking pit earns you retaliatory strikes on Nanking, but atmospheric bursts that collapse the Eastern US powergrid are far less likely of triggering MAD.

    Remember, our enemies are waging and are far likelier to win an economic war, rather than a shooting war. Take out American technology, and we're back to 19th Century settlements with very limited ability to project power/influence abroad.

    Somehow, I think your ROI is going to be very, very poor.

    Moot, not mute.
    It requires an O'dark30 workout, not layin' in the fart sack.
