I'm talking about a tidally locked two body system with perfectly circular orbits, where you continuously send signals from a fixed point on one surface to a fixed point on the other surface. The frequency shift would be constant here.PeterDonis said:Not if you're talking about clocks in a Hafele-Keating type experiment where one clock goes to the Moon and then comes back. That clock, at least, will not have constant ##r## and ##v## (in the notation of my post #28), and the frequency shift of signals between it and the other clock (if we assume the other clock is at rest on the rotating Earth) will not be constant.
