The Pierre Auger observatory is presently being upgraded to enlarge its detection capabilities for ultra-high-energy cosmic rays. Part of this upgrade is a radio detector array, aimed to cover a surface area of 3000 km2 to measure the properties of the highestenergy cosmic rays. The plans for this radio upgrade are outlined.
