Bleep frequency

What frequency is the normal TV swear bleeps? Is there a standard tone for this purpose?

I don't think there's a standard but it seems like it's usually 1k. Probably 'cause back before daws etc everything was going through analog consoles, most of which had 1k-10k-100hz oscillators in them, which were easy to patch in to make bleeps.
