In the present paper we discuss stochastic diffusion of energetic ions by a set of lower hybrid waves with frequencies close to each other and random phases which change along the time evolution of the system. We obtain efficient long term diffusion in velocity space, which is more representative of the diffusion produced by a continuous wave packet than the diffusion produced by a set of waves with random phases which are constant along the time evolution.
