Short summary
This manuscript presents a novel and interesting hypothesis about the seeding of equatorial spread F irregularities by meteors. Based on radar experiments, the study postulates that the triggering of these irregularities occurs even under very stable ionospheric conditions. The article demonstrates significant work on the relationship between meteors and F region irregularities at equatorial latitudes. The novel mechanism can encourage the ionospheric community to test this hypothesis.
