The conjecture by Hirschfield and Wachtel that a weak pulse of radiation can trigger the emission of a large delayed burst of coherent electron cyclotron radiation is examined critically. The effect is found to exist when the electrons have a single velocity perpendicular to the magnetic field, but disappears in a thermal equilibrium distribution.
