Re: Aircraft Doppler?



I have sent the calculation for when the transmitter and receiver are 
located at the same point.  The case is different if the receiver and 
transmitter are not co-located.  The solution is more complex, but the 
process is the same, compute the change in distance in mph and apply the 
factor of 0.429 Hz/mph for a 144 MHz signal.
