Skip to comments.On the Effectiveness of Aluminium Foil Helmets: An Empirical Study
Posted on 11/20/2005 7:31:30 PM PST by SERKIT
Among a fringe community of paranoids, aluminum helmets serve as the protective measure of choice against invasive radio signals. We investigate the efficacy of three aluminum helmet designs on a sample group of four individuals. Using a $250,000 network analyser, we find that although on average all helmets attenuate invasive radio frequencies in either directions (either emanating from an outside source, or emanating from the cranium of the subject), certain frequencies are in fact greatly amplified. These amplified frequencies coincide with radio bands reserved for government use according to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). Statistical evidence suggests the use of helmets may in fact enhance the government's invasive abilities. We speculate that the government may in fact have started the helmet craze for this reason.

So the government WANTS us to wear tinfoil hats!!! They've really pulled one over on the fringe groups.
We coulda saved them a whole buncha money!
The helmets amplify frequency bands that coincide with those allocated to the US government between 1.2 Ghz and 1.4 Ghz. According to the FCC, These bands are supposedly reserved for ''radio location'' (ie, GPS), and other communications with satellites (see, for example, ). The 2.6 Ghz band coincides with mobile phone technology. Though not affiliated by government, these bands are at the hands of multinational corporations. It requires no stretch of the imagination to conclude that the current helmet craze is likely to have been propagated by the Government, possibly with the involvement of the FCC. We hope this report will encourage the paranoid community to develop improved helmet designs to avoid falling prey to these shortcomings.
Or maybe they don't really want us to wear them, and they're using MIT to put out a bogus study.
It's a conspiracy involving conspiracies.
The only way to prove or disprove this is to do more intensive studies. I'll go apply for some government grants today!
They weren't making them right.
The frame must be shaped in an inverted double-reverse pentagram, with a Star-of-David placed at the crest.
Use platinum, if you have it.
Don't let this information get out to DU. You might actually see them wearing the damned things.
Gettin' my Christmas decorations ready to decorate my foil hat now. Be Prepared.
Not the government! The alien overlords.
Wear your foil helmet! Or not.
Wait a second...
one of the researchers is named ALI RAHIMI.
It's obvious that Someone wants us to put our trust in aluminum foil.
Isn't ALCOA a member of the Council on Foreign Relations?
Ready when you are!
Forwarded on to friends... Love posts like this, thanks!
I have quite an assortment of tinfoil hats myself. And yes I do have a Coast to Coast AM subscription.
I'll bet that the sorting hat put him on the short bus out of town.
It does my heart good to see 251+ views in 10 minutes with over 20 replies. FR rocks! Thanks for the comments.
Sometimes it is a bit difficult to make these seasonal changes with my hat..but Christmas is easy. I do keep one to work outdoors in just in case..nothing fancy..The one I freep in made for comfort..It is highly effective, though.
I am noting with interest all improvements. It may be a winter project.
They just don't want us to know how easy it is to make them.

Been my experience that within the conservative movement there are a lot of tinfoil hatters ;-)
As they say, these frequencies are in the keeping of MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS. Need I say more?
Well, actually not. All I have to do is think it and the boys in Langley get it on tape. You have to keep them on their toes - I like to visualize Helen Thomas in a leather corset or Teddy Kennedy in a thong. Michael Moore in spandex. HOW ABOUT IT, YOU BLACK HELICOPTER GUMMINT EAVESDROPPERS? HAD ENOUGH YET??
I don't know why I have a gut feeling on this, but I do. I'm guessing real tin works better than aluminum, and lead works better than both.
Saved to my newbie file..in case they need instruction.
They work great if you ground them with a 30 foot logging chain.
I has to be aluminum foil since there never has been such a thing as tin foil.
Now, about your screen name, IronJack: do you have a conflict of interest here?
My local WalMart sells a small roll of ALUMNINIUM FOIL for $0.62. It's the perfect size for a hat. If everyone would make their hat from this roll, we could stop global warming by not wasting material from the larger rolls of foil. I keep several of these small rolls on hand in my home and vehicles for emergency use and for distribution to all the deserving females who may be in my vicinity during an unsuspected attack of propoganda by the unkind others.
But what about telepathy? Does tinfoil block telepathy or not?
Leave it to a bunch of engineers to spend a fortune testing the wrong question!
Here you go!
Lead works best when skin diving.
What stuff. Of course the hats work.
This is just another sloppily executed DARPA disinformation project.
The conclusive rebuttal is here.
Well thanks alot for that information, how very helpful of them to let me know after all these years.
Hey -- I've worked in a lead shielded rooms a bunch of times. The first time -- at some quasi-national lab -- my boss stripped the lead out of the walls, made it into diving weights and sold them at his dive shop. His dive shop office annex was his office at the lab anyway.
So, they've gotten to you too.
Sorry, you're wrong. Tinfoil was a precursor to aluminum foil. It was stiffer and harder to use and gave food a slight taste if tin so it was discontinued in favor of aluminum.
1) only use the aluminium from beer cans
2) have the cans beaten into shape of your head
3) do this (by someone you trust, like an ex-wife, any inlaw or teenage son) directly on your head
4) trust the goverment.
5) beleive everything on DU. (repeat this until you get it right)
