Decided to ask the oracle - the guy who wrote the original radio aurora alert/pop-up scripts - and he referred me to this old paper. The distinction between aurora and radio-aurora is explained on the first couple of pages:

"As a working definition, let us now consider aurora to be the sporadic
electromagnetic radiation that is emitted from the atmosphere and
induced by extra-atmospheric atomic or subatomic particles. By
definition the aurora does not include the radio-aurora; they are separate
phenomena with the same basic origin. Aurora is basically emitted
radiation; radio-aurora is basically ionization that reflects radiation."

That works for me.
It's meant to be fun. . .
