The dynamics of an electron beam is considered when the initial electron distribution is localized in a space region. Analysis is conducted for the parameters of the beam and plasma that give radio emission. We demonstrate both numerically and analytically that beam electrons propagate as a beam-plasma structure at large distances. The speed of the beam-plasma structure is equal to half of the maximum velocity of the electrons involved in this structure. The structure conserves the shape of the initial spatial distribution of electrons. A plateau with a constant maximum velocity is formed at the electron distribution function in each spatial point.
