In a special program of experiments which is under development in a background regime at the VEPP-4M storage ring we set an aim to realize a potential possibility to make the CPT invariance test with the accuracy better than 10-8. The test will be based on a precise comparison of the spin precession frequencies of simultaneously stored electrons and positrons. To exclude the presence of static electric fields increasing a systematic error we have developed and tested a special RF system driven at the half revolution frequency to subsitute for the electrostatic orbit separation system. The latter is needed for the electron and positron orbit separation at the parasitic interaction point where the beam-beam effects drastically cut the beam currents.
