Abstract
An attractive mechanism for radiation transport by electron holes from the magnetospheric auroral cavity source region down to the ionosphere and possibly even down to the atmosphere is examined. Because of the excitation and propagation properties of the X mode, this mechanism turns out to be highly improbable for the usual resonant excitation of radiation of frequency just below the local electron cyclotron frequency, $\omega\lesssim\omega_{ce}$. It could work only, if the auroral ionosphere would be locally perforated being of sufficiently low density for allowing electron holes riding down to low altitudes on the auroral electron beam. If resonant excitation of higher electron cyclotron harmonics, $\omega\sim \ell\omega_{ce}, ~\ell= 2,3,\dots$, becomes possible, a still unexplored mechanism, then radiation excited inside the hole could be transported to lower altitudes than generated. If this happens, radiation would provide another mechanism of coupling between the magnetospheric plasma and the atmosphere.
