Actually, it does not describe a linear relationship, but rather an
inversely proportional relationship.

Below the low speed threshold, your beacon rate = slow rate. Above the
high speed threshold, your beacon rate = fast rate.

Your beacon rate is calculated immediately:
beacon_rate = fast_rate * high_speed_threshold / speed;
where speed is your current speed.

As above, it will be 1800 or whatever your slow_rate is set to... for
