At approximately 2025 UTC the sixth M class solar flare of the day has 
occurred, the latest an estimated M2. It has produced a strong radiowave 
blackout on the sun facing side of the earth, that has created significant 
signal absorption on frequencies as high as 30 meters and caused some signal 
absorption as high as the 10 meters band.

The solar flares are associated with large and active sunspot group numbers 
11164, 11165 and 11166. More M class solar flares are probable and there is 
also a small chance of and X class solar flare.
