I had a recollection that it was UOSAT-1 (OSCAR-9) that was planned to have a 23cm L-Band beacon and so I emailed Cliff G4BGP/G8FDH who has sent me the following:
It had been proposed that a 23cm beacon be carried on board UOSAT. However there was a legal problem to be overcome. A request was made to the World Administrative Conference in 1977 (WARC-77), to permit such a beacon to be operated, from space. Unfortunately the outcome of WARC77 prevented operation of the 23cm beacon... Consequently it was agreed that a 13cm beacon should also be considered.
