The evolution of the ULF resonant structure observed at the Teoloyucan geomagnetic station is studied in a possible relation with seismic activity in Mexico in 1999–2001. Two resonant lines were observed in the H-component (linear polarization) in the frequency bands fR2 = 10.2...11.1 mHz and fR2 = 13.6...14.5 mHz, sometimes accompanied by satellite lines. The source of the observed resonances is possibly related with the geomagnetic location of the station (geomagnetic latitude λ =29.1°) and its proximity to the equatorial electrojet (λ=30°). An enhancement of the carrier frequency of both resonances in the period from one month to two weeks was found before the strongest EQs. Also, a depression of the resonant structure just a few days before and a few days after some EQs seems to be correlated with seismic activity.
