We show that in both high anisotropy superconductors Bi2212 (Tc = 90 K), and Bi2223 (Tc = 110 K), an AC magnetic field applied collinear to the DC field and parallel to the Cu layers induces strong microwave dissipation. It is theoretically predicted that the Josephson solitons are responsible for this absorption. Good qualitative agreement of experimental data with theoretical predictions is found. Differences observed in the experimental results between these two compounds are discussed.
