ISS Radar Experiment

I have an idea for an experiment.
Why dont we try to track the Space Station uplinking a strong signal against it and listening to the passively reflected downlink?
I am sure that some of us could also compute the ISS trajectory and make home brew keplerian elements just examining the doppler effect.
