We present a new radio array experiment on the top of the highest mountains in Antarctica, to detect upward moving air-showers similar to those recently reported by the ANITA experiment. The detection concept follows ANITA, but has significantly greater livetime and extendibility. We propose to install 10 stations over the next 5 years to obtain sufficient sensitivity to test ANITA’s `mystery events'. As the first step, we installed a prototype station (TAROGE-M) consisting of 5 LPDA antennas, atop Mt. Melbourne, Antarctica at an elevation of 2730 m, in Feb-Mar 2019. We present the scientific potential, detector design and construction, as well as the initial performance of the prototype station.
