Commercial AM radio was acting strange this morning.  A station that I
only receive at night time (DX) was covering a daytime station that I
don't usually have an issue with.  That was backwards to what I
thought would happen during a solar event.

On the NOAA scale of radiation storms, this one ranks S3, which means it could, e.g., cause isolated reboots of computers onboard Earth-orbiting satellites and interfere with polar radio communications. An example of satellite effects: The "snow" in this SOHO coronagraph movie is caused by protons hitting the observatory's onboard camera
