We present the results of measuring the characteristics of electromagnetic and plasma disturbances at altitudes of about 700 km, obtained by using the onboard equipment of the French microsatellite DEMETER during its passage through the magnetic tube resting upon the region of intense generation of artificial ionospheric turbulence created due to modification of the ionospheric F2 region by high-power radio emission from the “Sura” facility. It is shown that an artificial density duct emerging from the disturbed region and extending to the Earth’s magnetosphere can be formed.
