Abstract: A characterization is given of those locally compact groups having equivalent right and left uniform structures. It is shown that $ \alpha $-compact locally compact groups have equivalent uniformities iff for each right uniformly discrete set $ B$ such that card $ (B) \leq \alpha $ and each neighborhood $ U$ of $ e,{ \cap _{x \in B}}xU{x^{ - 1}}$ is a neighborhood of $ e$. It is also shown that a group is not unimodular iff it contains an open $ \sigma $-compact group which is not unimodular.
