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 other words, the speed of light varies with the speed of the observer, in violation of Einstein's relativity.
