Extract

On 1981 March 17–18 we undertook MkIII VLBI observations of the quasars 1038+528 A, B (Owen et al. 1979; Owen et al. 1980) with an array of 7 telescopes operating simultaneously at λ3.6 and λ13 cm with right circular polarization reception at each wavelength. Because the sources are ~33″ apart they could be observed simultaneously at every telescope. Thus the corrupting contributions of the propagation medium and the instrumentation were approximately the same for each of the quasars, hence allowing us to calibrate the structure phase of B with respect to a reference point chosen in the map of A using the expression where φB and φA are the observed fringe phases, φG B and φG A are the geometric contribution with respect to the reference points chosen in each map and φS A is the structure phase contribution with respect to the reference point chosen in the A map.
