We have found conditions in which a structure consisting of an overdense warm plasma layer spaced between two underdense warm plasma layers becomes transparent to a p-polarized obliquely incident electromagnetic wave. The energy of the incident wave is transferred across the overdense region by a pair of coupled surface waves.
