Abstract : Fully calibrated two-way time transfers between the U.S. Naval Observatory (USNO) and the U.S. Naval Observatory Time Service Substation (NOTSS) have become operational. The calibration method employed was the co-located Earth station method. Results concerning timing, stability, comparison of two-way and Global Positioning System (GPS) timing Links, and remote clock contribution to Local time scale computation will be presented.
