The theories of two decay-type parametric instabilities involving the lower hybrid mode in a magnetized plasma are presented. In the first of these, a pump wave of ordinary polarization causes the growth of a backward propagating transverse wave and a longitudinal lower hybrid wave, all with wave vectors perpendicular to the external magnetic field. The second instability concerns the parametric excitation of the upper hybrid and the lower hybrid modes.
