It is shown that the q type of equatorial Es at Huancayo disappears during the daytime hours when the drifts measured by Doppler shift of VHF radar echoes indicate extremely small values or an eastward E-region or downward F-region drifts. The Es-q is suggested to be due to cross field irregularities and its disappearance is due to temporary reversal of the horizontal E-region electrostatic field causing reversal or the stoppage of equatorial electrojet currents.
