Abstract
After many attempts since C.T.R Wilson predicted the acceleration of electrons in thunderstorms, Moore et al. [1] finally reported high-energy emissions produced by natural lightning to ground. These emissions were attributed to the intense electric fields produced by negative leaders to ground (e.g. [2-3]) On the other hand, radio frequency (RF) radiation from lightning at frequencies higher than 500 MHz have been poorly investigated since the pioneering work by Takagi and Takeuti [4]. RF radi...
