Millisecond pulsar as clocks are excellent tools for studying a variety of phenomena in physics and astrophysics (e.g. Foster & Backer 1990). We have been observing millisecond pulsars with the 100–m Effelsberg radiotelescope since April 1994. Initially, the goal of this program was to help continuing the timing of Arecibo pulsars during the upgrade–related shutdown period of the 305–m radiotelescope. Gradually, the program has evolved to time and study the emission physics of all short period pulsars detectable from Effelsberg. In particular, polarization measurements are used to make inferences about the emission physics of millisecond pulsars (cf. Xilouris & Kramer, this proceeding). At present, the programme involves approximately monthly observations of a set of 22 sources.
