Beacon Frequency

Beacon frequency is the dedicated frequency at which a satellite transmits its beacon signal, which serves various purposes such as tracking, identification, and signal strength measurements. The beacon frequency is carefully selected to ensure reliable and efficient communication between the satellite and ground stations.

By using a specific frequency for the beacon signal, it becomes easier for ground-based equipment, such as beacon receivers, to detect and decode the signal. This enables tracking and monitoring of the satellite’s location, orbit, and movement patterns.

The beacon frequency also plays a crucial role in identifying the satellite among other signals in the space environment. It serves as a unique identifier for the satellite, allowing ground operators and tracking systems to differentiate it from other satellites or space objects.
