Ionospheric disturbances caused by solar radiation and magnetospheric-ionospheric coupling occurring both due to normal interactions within the Sun-Earth system, and enhanced activity due to space weather, impact high frequency radio communication (HF COM) used, for example, by the aviation industry. Impacts due to polar cap absorption and shortwave fadeout are mitigated through monitoring of the solar proton flux and solar x-ray flux measured by the GOES satellites operated by NOAA SWPC. This work presents a comparison of solar flux and solar proton flux data from the east and west sensors of the GOES 13 and GOES 15 satellites for periods where both instruments were in operation.
