Not at all.

The entry guard says "No Cell Phones".. and [s]he has the gun.
You can whine and pout but [s]he still has the gun.

THAT is how you solve that issue. No shield rooms needed.

I had some bozo try to bring his pagers into my [1] SCIF once.
"But Man, I NEED my pagers.." {"I am SO important, in my eyes at
least, that you can not strip me of my status symbols.."}

I offered that he could keep the pager-pieces after I smashed
them.... and he decided he did not NEED them after all. They
stayed in the unclass area on someone's desk, someone who could
call me if they went off. They did not.

[1] I was the SCIF Security Officer; what a thankless role..

& no one will talk to a host that's close........[v].(301) 56-LINUX
Unless the host (that isn't close).........................pob 1433
