A proposal is made to establish a low budget Gravitational Wave (GW) detector at CANDLE site that will use as a source synchrotron radiation. The GW detector will work in MHz domain, with a possibility, to be improved, to work in kHz domain and lower. The advantage of using CANDLE as light source is motivated with wide frequency range of light source at CANDLE that will be necessary for “tuning” the detector in different frequencies of GWs.
