A sort-of follow-up to Are the Voyager probes still sending us a signal ?
Still following on the news report referenced in the above question, this report indicates further magnetic surprises at, or near to, the interface of Sol's family with the rest of the universe. I recall reading there are such things as constructive/destructive interference which serve to amplify/attenuate an EM wave respectively. By this I assume there is a limit on the minimum amount of power required to penetrate a given magnetic field (I know it's possible to operate QRP 1W CW across antipodes!)
What is the minimum strength a signal must be at the edge of the Solar System to penetrate the magnetic field/s and be audible on Earth?
- The discovered magnetic region is of uniform strength, spherical in nature (centred around Sol), and
- The source magnetic field is in the planetary plane
