The recording of such an event is considered very important for it occurs rarely due to blocking of many frequencies of this type by layers of atmosphere, in addition to the fact that it gives a warning about the presence of coronal mass ejecta (CMEs) which in turn sends solar active objects (SEPs) that affect communication, spacecraft and earth’ atmosphere and weather.
