Hi I have recently discovered that I'm living next door to a large wifi zone!
I required general advice about shielding - which online resources would you recommend?
I've not attempted it before because I have been put off by the expense and been concerned about getting it wrong (which I hear is possible?)
What have others used to protect then from EM radiation on their windows? Has anyone tried the window film? or made curtains out of shielding material?
My MCS is too severe to try the shielding paint (I would imagine), so what have others used on their walls please? Has anyone tried the shielding wallpaper and found a wallpaper paste they can tolerate?
Thank you very much
i'm looking into shielding too, but i can only give advice after my own experiences.
i'm getting a meter so i can check what i do and where it's coming from the most. it will be many months/years before i have enough money for shielding most of my home though. I've read you need to know field strength to know what shielding to buy. You will need to do a lot of reading. Use the search in this forum to find and read past experiences/advice.
For me a canopy made w/ Nutrell swiss shield. I have curtains made from it also, but they do not do much, as I have metal walls but it still comes in the roof and floor. The canopy I have seems to block all except for neighbors' smart meter pulses. I am not hooked up to a power company myself and have no meter of any kind on my property. I do find there is nothing that blocks the pulses from those that do have them, except distance.
I found the best thing to do for wifi is go where there is some distance from other residences. The closest one to me has no net installed and some others the same but I still get trickles from the rest. I have to say it's much better than my last place on the wifi and it made it worth the move. I found it best to make sure not to live in a heavy wifi zone. Have not had a TIA in months! Not saying that where I am is not continuing to make me sicker from the EMFs-it is, but just not as fast and hard as the last place, considering this state is the highest level of stress possible say compared to NYC, Jersey, LA and other so called stress areas-that this area far surpasses. But having less wifi around me is noticeable even considering. If you can just move so there is more distance and a little bit better reading on your meter, though not perfect, better is something.
If I were doing this over, I would start by making a bed tent with aluminum bug screen.
Two things to watch out for are that you need electrical contact along all of the edges, and you can't have wires running through the shield. Some people use electrically conductive tape for the edges, but I ended up using some bare copper wire and 'sewing' them together (no needle required because the wire was stiff enough). Before I did that, I could hear an FM radio loud and clear in my shield, so it obviously wasn't working. Now I get static, and trimming loose wires from the edges of the screen has made it quieter.
I think the screen has to be on all sides, including under the bed.
The other thing is that you need a way to get in and out. Right now I just have a flap of screen for a door, and some metal hooks made out of paper clips to hold it shut and maintain electrical contact along its edges.
