This is how the K index looked around mid-December of 2006. It really peaked on the 15 as shown on this NOAA graph. For two weeks, all three colours were always

mixed: Red, yellow and green resulting in a quite steady

aurora. Thus many domestic stations were blanked

allowing various LA station to show up. At some

frequencies,  pile-ups of LA stations were also noticed.

Imagine at that time with a Perseus capturing a 1600 KHz

chunk. It certainly would have resulted into many hours of

listening in order to digest it all. Since I'm in medium wave Dxing, this is the strongest aurora I could experience.

At my latitude, it is generally easier to DX Europe and the Middle East than Latin America. Most of LA medium wave stations listed bellow have been heard during similar geo-magnetic disturbances.
