This is a report on fluctuation measurements using twin heavy ion beam probes in CHS. The observation shows that dozens of coherent modes with intermittent nature co-exist in an electron cyclotron heated plasma. The modes are found to have a long-distance correlation in the toroidal direction. The radial structure of the modes is evaluated in potential fluctuation. The characteristics are consistent with those of the geodesic acoustic modes.
