The ITU assigned 432-438 MHz to satellites using Synthetic Aperture Radar some 13+ years.
While the article says the equipment is capable of transmitting a bandwidth of up to 30 MHz it doesn't necessarily mean it will use that bandwidth.
I'd have thought a 6 MHz bandwidth transmission from 432-438 was more likely.
