Solar flare affects shortwave radio communications in southern China
Anyone already reported this?

[snip]
BEIJING, Feb. 15 (Xinhua) -- A large solar flare accompanied by electromagnetic storms affected shortwave radio communications in southern China on Tuesday, according to the China Meteorological Administration (CMA).

The CMA's space weather monitoring center reported that it had spotted the X2.2-class solar flare at 9:56 a.m. Tuesday Beijing Time.

Xue Bingsen, a researcher with the center, said the solar flare caused sudden ionospheric disturbances in the atmosphere above China and affected shortwave radio communications, according to a CMA statement.

The 10 and 12 meter amateur radio bands are working today thanks to the flare. The ionosphere has thickened because of the charged particles from the sun and higher frequencies can bounce off of it, normally they would just go right through.

These two bands have been mostly useless for years. In the next couple days it should even better, more like when we are at a sunspot maximum.
