# What frequency do GPS satellites use?

## What frequency do GPS satellites use?

1575.42 MHz
All GPS satellites broadcast on at least two carrier frequencies: L1, at 1575.42 MHz, and L2, at 1227.6 MHz (newer satellites also broadcast on L5 at 1176 MHz).

## What is the frequency range of GPS?

Each GPS satellite transmits data on two frequencies, L1 (1575.42 Mhz) and L2 (1227.60 MHz). The atomic clocks aboard the satellite produces the fundamental L-band frequency, 10.23 Mhz. The L1and L2 carrier frequencies are generated by multiplying the fundamental frequency by 154 and 120, respectively.

Can a GLONASS satellite transmit a GPS signal?

A modernized GLONASS-K satellite (GLONASS-KM) could transmit the legacy FDMA signals on L1 and L2 and CDMA signals on L1, L2, and L3. It could also transmit CDMA signals on the GPS L5 frequency at 1176.45 MHz.

### Where are the GPS L2 and GLONASS G6 signals located?

The remaining GPS L2, GLONASS G2 and Galileo E6 signals are in the bands 1 215.6 – 1 350 MHz. These bands were allocated to Radio-location Services (ground radars) and RNSS on a primary basis, thence the signals in these bands are more vulnerable to interference than the previous ones.

### Which is the GNSS frequency band for GPS?

The page covers GNSS Frequency Band and GPS frequency band. The GNSS frequency bands include GLONASS, Galileo, Compass CPII/Beidou, IRNSS etc. GPS frequency bands include GPS L1, GPS L2, GPS L5, QZSS L2C, QZSS E6, QZSS L1 etc. Following table-1 mentions GPS frequency bands.

What is the clock rate of the GLONASS signal?

The GLONASS standard accuracy signal, also known as C/A Code, has a clock rate of 0.511 MHz and is designed for use by civil users worldwide while the high accuracy signal (P Code) has a clock rate of 5.11 MHz and is modulated by a special code which is only available to users authorized by the Ministry of Defence.
