HF communications below 30 mhz, yes. There may be some effects on VHF lo band stuff (and maybe 6 meters and perhaps 2m) but I kinda doubt anything above that will see any changes - it's possible but not very likely. As I type this, the last conditions report was 109/27/3 - with a A index of 27 and a K of 3, we're in for some fairly disturbed conditions for a day or two
These lay stories tend to 'lay it on thick', if you know what I mean. It makes for good copy.
