  1. Could a Emp pulse mess up a person's compass reading while using a standard type compass? Not using a digital compass.

    Not likely, at least not after the immediate aftermath of the pulse.

  4. Could EMP set off air bag ?
  5. This is probably a bigger worry. Unless an EMP was a really long duration, i don't think it's likely you would notice.

    I think that is possible. An electrical surge can indeed initiate an airbag explosion, as I understand it.

    Excess iron or metal in the soil will wreak havoc on a compass. The area that we duck hunt in AR is in the middle of 30K acre state wildlife management area and so remote cell phones and GPS don't work since we are hunting under massive hardwood flooded timber. We navigate by trees and flagging tape in part of this area.
