Question:

Doppler and Speed of light

Jeremiah: 3 days ago

If an an over-the-air radio signal of a certain frequency $f_c=300$ MHz travels in my direction while I'm standing still, then I observe the signal travelling towards me at the speed to light and I measure no Doppler switch.

However, if the speed of light is always constant to the eyes of a the observer regardless if the observer is moving or not, I should also measure $300$x$10^6$ periods a second (and thus no Doppler shift) if I move towards the light source. But theory tells that, when moving towards the light source, positive Doppler should happen.

Where is the mistake in my understanding?

if you move relativ to the sending source of the wave, your time scale is different, so the frequency you measure is different.
