An universal mechanism responsible for excitation of the low-threshold two upper-hybrid (UH) plasmon absolute parametric decay instability of a pump extraordinary microwave is proposed and analysed in detail. A corner-stone of it is the 2D localization of the daughter UH waves in an intensive magnetic field aligned blob/filament and the presence of a finite-width mm-wave pump beam
