Short summary
It is suggested that collisionless reconnection under conditions of very strong current-parallel guide fields in dilute plasmas should become a rather efficient source of electromagnetic radiation in the free space modes X and O and their harmonics. The mechanism is based on the electron cyclotron maser instability (ECMI), which can be excited by the anisotropic weakly relativistic electron distribution in the many inertial lengths long electron exhausts caused in reconnection.
