We have found that the local density of state fluctuations (LDOSF) in a disordered metal, detected using an impurity in the barrier as a spectrometer, undergo enhanced (with respect to Shubnikov-de Haas and de Haas-van Alphen effects) oscillations in strong magnetic fields, omega(c)tau greater than or equal to 1. We attribute this to the dominant role of the states near the bottom of Landau bands which give the major contribution to the LDOSF and are most strongly affected by disorder. We also demonstrate that in intermediate fields the LDOSF increase with field B in accordance with the results obtained in the diffusion approximation.
