Re: solar flairs

Solar activity can have a very pronounced effect on both MW and LW. When there is a large
enough auroral storm, higher latitude signals on these bands will be absorbed. How low in
latitude depends on the severity of the storm. The result is that stations which normally are
inaudible due to interference from the northerly directions may become audible as a result
of the absorption of the interference. Thus "auroral conditions" generally means a perceived
enhancement from the South.
