The self-modulation process of the electromagnetic impulse propagating along the external magnetic field in the electron cyclotron resonance regime is investigated. It is shown that in this case the resonance increase of the plasma wave amplitude excited by the impulse takes place. The numerical simulation of the self-modulation process is performed using the particle-in-cell method.
