We are carrying out an R&D project to search for radar echoes from cosmic ray induced extensive air showers. For the verification of the radar echo technique, we have used the electron beam as a pseudo air shower generated by the Electron Light Source (ELS). The radio receivers consist of two wide-band log-periodic antennas and digital receivers, and the transmitter consists of a Yagi antenna. We have observed a radio signal synchronized with the electron beam. The design of the experiments, detail of the observed signal and a result of the field test will be presented.
