Looking for X-band or Ku band source

  I am looking for a reliable X-band or Ku-band source in LEO to track 
for a university project.  We are attempting to build a low cost, high 
precision ground tracking station at Ku band but I have not found any 
LEO Ku band sources, other than the Iridium feeder downlink which has a 
very small footprint.  I have resolved to do my proof of concept 
demonstration at X-band where I believe a reliable source may exist, 
although maintaining the small beamwidth will require a larger dish.  
Does anyone know of a reliable LEO X-band source, preferrably a beacon, 
that I could use to test my ground station?  73,
