There's no reason to. The pingers aren't unique in their frequency. The rate of ping is what sets them apart, not the frequency.
It also had a separate consignment which contained 200kg of lithium batteries. The company that manufactured the batteries has not even been named.
So, to have 200kg of lithium batteries onboard a passenger plane is a MAJOR safety risk, I've seen first hand how big a mess even a single lithium cell makes when it malfunctions, to have 200kg on a passenger flight is an insane risk! If those cells vented or were damaged during the flight then its a safe bet that that's why the plane went down!
