A discrete VLF frequency of 3 kHz was successfully radiated by a modulated electron beam on a rocket launched into an active aurora. Instrumentation on this flight included a programmable electron accelerator on the aft section with various particle and field detectors on the aft section as well as the ejected forward payload. The accelerator programmer included a current modulation period at fixed electron energy for 0.45 seconds duration approximately every 11 seconds throughout the flight. Author
