This will affect anyone operating on HF.

Signals need good, proper, resonant antennas.  

After antenna, is power.  Not a lot of power is
needed, if you've got a good working antenna.

But it's all for naught, if there's no propagation.

<>On 10 January, a new sunspot group emerged and was assigned NOAA Region
number 720. This sunspot group has grown rapidly and currently has an
area of 1540 millionths of the size of the Solar disk (about 18 times
the size of the Earth).  So far this region has only produced minor
flare activity (R1). However, its growth and complexity suggest that it
is capable of moderate to strong levels of flare activity (R2 to R3
levels) during the next 7 days. .  <>

These types of flares lead to HF radio blackouts.

The effects range from minor degradation of HF communication (R1), up to
wide area blackouts on the daylit side of the earth for about an hour (R3).
