Very large sunspot group #11476 located near N12E08 now has a 
beta-gamma-delta twisted magnetic signature capable of producing extremely 
large and powerful X class solar flares. So far it's responsible for eleven 
M class solar flares.

As #11476 is currently geo-effective (earth facing), any associated solar 
flares, coronal mass ejections, sudden ionosphere disturbances and last but 
not least elevated energetic proton events would really wreak havoc with LF, 
MF and HF radiowave propagation conditions.
