In science:

From high quality observations made using the Arecibo radio telescope spanning almost a decade [213, 214, 134], the group has demonstrated that the timing stability of millisecond pulsars over such time-scales is comparable to terrestrial atomic clocks.
Binary and Millisecond Pulsars at the New Millennium
Such phenomenal precision is a testament to the timing stability of radio pulsars as clocks, and the diligence of Taylor and collaborators in carrying out these long-term measurements.

However, whilst the theory of the second paper, which we shall refer to as the quasi-classical (one-clock) theory, works extremely well within the optical disc, it is not able to generate the flat extensions to rotation curves usually associated with the radio disc.
Flatness in disc galaxy dynamics without MOND or dark matter
Before correlation, the clock offsets have to be determined as precisely as possible with the help of radio timing signals (Loran C before GPS became available) or with traveling high-precision clocks. A VLBI specific problem is the “detection ” of the fringes.
A Review of VLBI Instrumentation
On reception of their signals at events 1 and 2, A and B can exchange radio signals and mutually confirm that their clocks read the same (similarly for events 3 and 4 etc.) Importantly we see that clocks in the uniformly translating frames A and B run at the same rate.
