Beacon freq?



Hasen,

Even with doppler correction, I have been finding the beacon 10 to 15 Khz 
high or low on differerent passes. I don't see a pattern yet. I have my 
downlink LO frequency pretty well guesstimated using UO-11 (assuming it 
really is at 2401.500000) That seemed to be the consensus of the group 
except someone said the other day 2401.505000. At any rate the AO-40 beacon 
we are saying is at 2401.323 Mhz.  So the message is look around up to 60 
Khz plus or minus without doppler corrections. Even with them I am seeing 
plus or minus 10khz.  I am beginning to contribute most of this error to 
timing errors.
