Superhigh-energy cosmic ray detection using shower radioemission

East-Ukrainian National University, kvartal Molodezhnyi 20-A, Lugansk, 91034, Ukraine

It is argued that preconditions currently exist for more actively studying the possibility of detecting cosmic rays of superhigh energy (1021-1023 eV) by observing radio emission from a cascade shower. To illustrate this point, major results from the initial period of research (1961-1980) are briefly reviewed, problems unresolved at that time are pointed out, and subsequent advances that have stimulated further progress in this area are described.
