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.

That is possible

There is a strong space survelliance radar along the Southeast US. It transmits on 216.98 MHz See: [url]http://www.fas.org/spp/military/program/track/spasur_at.htm[/url]
