A three-way time transfer system for comparing a satellite clock and a ground clock is described. It eliminates not only distance variations like a two-way system but also ionospheric signal delay by the third way. The accuracy of such a system is limited of course by signal-to-noise ratio but essentially by controlling the equipment delay times
