Abstract An explanation of the position of the spread-F equator under sunspot maximum and sunspot minimum conditions is put forward. This explanation is based on the theory of spread-F irregularity production by Martyn amplification of irregularities initiated by hydromagnetic waves. It is shown that consideration of the spatial distribution of F-region critical frequency, height, and vertical motion in conjunction with the variation with latitude and season of hydromagnetic wave illumination of the upper ionosphere allows the position of the spread-F equator to bo predicted.
