When I worked as a technician my whole work area was a double walled
screen room considerably larger than my whole ham shack. With the door
latched you could not hear or even detect the signal from a 5W HT within
a foot of the outside wall on an analyzer.
However, remember the Faraday cage is an electrostatic shield, not a
magnetic one. How well would it protect from the field produced from a
few thousand (or more) amps? I have no idea.
