In an inhomogeneous magnetized plasma, mode conversions of an electrostatic cyclotron harmonic wave into an electromagnetic ordinary wave and vice versa are spatially investigated by a study of the ray trajectories and the wave fronts. Electrostatic cyclotron harmonic waves are found to be spatially trapped between the upper hybrid frequency layers.
