Re: Q0-100 Web-SDR 198Hz frequency error

I believe the beacons are all sent from either AMSAT-DL or the hams in QATAR, not generated on the satellite so this introduces another possible (but unlikely) source of error.

Subject: [UKMicrowaves] Q0-100 Web-SDR 198Hz frequency error
Just checked teh Goonhilly Web-SDR and there is close to 200Hz discrepancy in the tone freq between my fully locked receiving system and it
(At 1504z, 22 June 2021) WebSDR tuned to 10489998.00, and the lower keyed tone of the upper beacon comes out at 1681Hz
On my system set at the same tuning point, the tone is 1485Hz
If I generate a local signal at 10490MHz from a separate synth the resulting tone is 2000.00Hz as expected.
Conclusion - Goonhilly Web-SDR has a frequency locking error
