The advanced electromagnetic wave detector and analyzer, Signal Analyzer and Sampler 2, successfully operated on board of Compass-2 satellite (launched May 2006). One of the peculiarities of this experiment was that the efficient sensitivities of both electric and magnetic channels were very close to being identical. Between the interesting events detected we found the evidence of whistler mode signals propagating in higher- (third-) order guided mode, most probable between two layers i.e.," conionskin" structure was in the plasmasphere at this time). We present in the paper the real full wave ultrawideband interpretation of these propagating signals using the exact solution of Maxwell's equations in this boundary problem.
