Abstract Radio signals in the VHF range were recorded and compared with ionograms over a wide range of southern latitudes during a few equinoctial months for which a large variation in the magnetic disturbance level was observed. It is evident that the equatorwards edge of the auroral scintillation oval extends well into mid-latitudes for high values of magnetic K-index. The range-spreading type of spread-F and scintillation-producing irregularities show a high degree of spatial coincidence from the polar cap to mid-latitudes. It is suggested that the inhomogeneities responsible for both ionospheric phenomena are associated with the equatorwards propagation of travelling ionospheric disturbances (T1Ds) generated in the auroral zone.
