Paper Abstract

Data on March 2013 were used to verify the theory of whistler propagation along a magnetic field tube, from which the recorded whistlers are expected to be associated with lightning discharges in Kamchatka and in magnetically conjugate point in Australia. When comparing the whistler rates recorded at AWDANet station in Kamchatka with lightning discharge rates according to the data of the World Wide Lightning Location Network, it was determined that the intensity highest values are associated with lightning in magnetically conjugate points. At the same time there were some small splashes in the intensity which clearly correlated with the activity of American and African sources. Some splashes may be associated with the activity in all thee sources in America, Africa and Indonesia.
