The received power spectrum in incoherent scatter can contain two sharp resonances removed from the center frequency. The first is due to ordinary electrostatic plasma oscillations and is known as the plasma line. The second depends on the presence of a magnetic field and corresponds to the high-frequency end of the whistler mode in magnetoionic theory. Here we report an experimental detection of this second resonance.
