Satellite and frequency

  1. Sep 21, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    a synchronous satellite parked in orbit over the equator is used to relay microwave transmissions between stations on the ground. to what frequency must the satellite's reciever be tuned if the frequency of the transmission from earch is exactly 9.376GHz?(ignore doppler effects)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    i thought i could have used the gravitational redshift formula: f/f0=1+GM/R but there isn't a mass to work with here

    there is also the formula (f-fo)/fo=gh/c^2 but i don't think it relates to this
