For my physics project I decided to make a Faraday cage to cancel out cell phone signal.
The Attempt at a Solution
For my first attempts at making a successful project I used chicken wire and wire mesh to make a cylindrical cage. Our goal was to cancel out all cell phone signals within the cage but we only managed to drop a few bars in service. We tried grounding the cage but we didn't notice any difference in signal strength. One cage had about 1cm gaps in between wire and the other had about 1mm. The second cage did produce better results but nothing satisfactory. IF anyone has any experience or has an idea for building a Faraday cage it would be appreciated.
