Abstract. The Fast Auroral Snapshot (FAST) explorer frequently observes the auroral density cavity, which is the source region for Auroral Kilometric Radiation (AKR). An important factor in the generation of AKR is the relative abundance of hot and cold electrons within the cavity, since hot electrons introduce relativistic modifications to the wave dispersion. VLF wave-form data acquired by FAST within the auroral density cavity show clear signatures of whistlermode waves propagating on the resonance cone. T…
