Abstract

Power patterns are presented for VLF radiation (500 Hz to 30 kHz) from arbitrarily oriented, point magnetic and electric dipole sources in a two-component, slightly lossy magnetoplasma. The patterns show that energy tends to be transported primarily along the magnetic axis of a confinement cone for higher VLF frequencies but that the inclusion of ion motion destroys the confinement cone for extremely low frequencies.
