One thing you may want to look into is 10.7cm or 2800MHz. This is used to gauge solar activity and is often used instead of the sunspot number. I would imagine there would be a significant change as the sun goes into eclipse. A google search for 10.7cm flux should yield more than I'm capable of explaining.

Is there any site, articles, info etc on frequency’s to listen to the sun during the eclipse on VHF, UHF +, etc.  Also does anyone know if the radio signals from the sun will be “interrupted” as the moon passes.  Any info for a radio project would be appreciated.
