Recently the radar scattering technique to probe neutrino induced particle cascades above PeV energies in ice was investigated. The feasibility of the radar detection method was shown to crucially depend on several up to now unknown plasma properties, such as the plasma lifetime and the free charge collision rate. To determine these parameters, a radar scattering experiment was performed at the Telescope Array Electron Light Source facility, where a beam of high-energy electrons was directed in a block of ice. The induced ionization plasma was consequently probed using a radar detection set-up detecting over a wide frequency range from 200 MHz up to 2 GHz. First qualitative results of this experiment will be presented.
