A light source emits a series of pulses equally distanced from one another. A stationary observer (receiver) measures the frequency:

The observer starts moving with constant speed towards the light source and measures the frequency again:

Premise 1: The moving observer measures the frequency to be higher.

Premise 2: The formula

(measured frequency) = (speed of the pulses relative to the observer)/(distance between the pulses)

is correct.

Conclusion: The speed of the pulses relative to the moving observer is higher than relative to the stationary observer, in violation of Einstein's relativity.
