An experiment is described showing that a 33-GHz microwave signal received by rotating antennas is not exhibiting the frequency shift ("transverse Doppler effect") predicted by the relativistic Doppler formula. The sensitivity of the apparatus used has been tested to be sufficient for detecting frequency shifts as small as 10/sup -3/ Hz which corresponds to the value of (v/c)/sup 2/ = 5.10/sup -14/ used in the transverse Doppler shift experiment reported here. From the observed absence of the… Expand

TLDR
It has not been demonstrated in the comment that the equations of the relativistic Doppler effect had been misapplied, but it seems that those equations may have been improperly applied in the comments. Expand
