# Sticking My Nose (As Usual) Where It Does Not Belong

INMARSAT has passed the following to those engineers working the Flight MH-370 signal intercept issue.

If the precise frequency of the MH-370 transmissions is known, and compared with

the intercepted value, you can, by applying the cosine values of estimates for

the offset angle from the location of the satellite to the assumed course of

flight MH-370 (180), approximate speed.

Depending on the accuracy of the intercept time, you can do the same thing and

derive a position if you have three satellites involved. You also may be able to

do that by using sequential intercepts by one satellite at different positions

along its orbit if you calculate and correct for the changing position of the

satellite.

Will advise if there is any response.
