Measurements verify that the occurrence of mesoscale travelling ionospheric disturbances (TIDs) is not associated with geomagnetic disturbance. Approximately in 10 % of the cases, the amplitude of TIDs exceeds 0.1 on a relative scale. A latitudinal dependence of the TID wavelength is detected. The lifetimes of wave disturbances do not exceed 11-12 h.
