Abstract: In small-scale experiments such as CODALEMA and LOPES, radio detection ofcosmic rays has demonstrated its potential as a technique for cosmic raymeasurements up to the highest energies. Radio detection promises measurementswith high duty-cycle, allows a direction reconstruction with very good angularresolution, and provides complementary information on energy and nature of thecosmic ray primaries with respect to particle detectors at ground andfluorescence telescopes. Within the Pierre Auger Observatory, we tackle thetechnological and scientific challenges for an application of the radiodetection technique on large scales. Here, we report on the results obtained sofar using the Southern Auger site and the plans for an engineering array ofradio detectors covering an area of ~20 km^2.
