Radial phase space density profiles for equatorially mirroring particles are computed from the data of the University of Iowa packages on Pioneer 10. The profiles are only consistent with radial diffusion subject to nonadiabatic losses. It is suggested that these losses are due to pitch angle scattering by whistler turbulence.
