Abstract

Extra and very low frequency (ELF/VLF) wave generation by modulated polar electrojet currents is studied analytically and numerically. Through Ohmic heating by the amplitude-modulated HF heating wave, the conductivity and thus the current of the electrojet are modulated accordingly to set up the ionospheric antenna current. Thus, the generation efficiency and signal quality of the ionospheric virtual antenna depend on the HF wave modulation scheme.
