wish i coud benefit from being here by asking you about (MAGNETS) does it effective to perform as a blocker against rf and microwavessignals. - by meaning - if i put a magnet in 200 METER SQUARE AREA does it capable of shield the area and prevent the rf and the microwave signals from entering it and reflect it away hope i could benefit from your experience . LOT OF THANKS , WAITING FOR YOUR REPLY.

Magnets will have no effect whatsoever on microwaves or on any other type of light. You can, however, surround the volume you would like to isolate with a conducting surface - this is known as a Faraday Shield - and it will really work. The military does this all the time in a process known as "hardening" to protect electronic circuits.
