The effect of a fine structure of the orbital electron energy levels of an Ar17+ ion on the resonant coherent excitation under planar channeling has been investigated by computer simulation technique. The obtained resonance curves are characterized by two closely situated peaks due to the transitions of an electron from the ground to excited states corresponding to the different components of a fine structure of the first excited state which differ in the value of the total electron momentum (1/2 or 3/2).
