A multiple‐receiver radar technique for imaging the spatial distribution of ionospheric plasma irregularities is introduced and demonstrated with equatorial electrojet data obtained at the Jicamarca Radio Observatory. The images obtained with a few seconds time resolution enable the monitoring of the temporal evolution of the irregularity structures within the radar field of view. Daytime electrojet images contain signatures of localized irregularity patches which drift in the east‐west direction at about the ion‐acoustic velocity.
