Abstract: To test the capabilities of a synchronization system based on the use of the passive television method applied to the signal's broadcast by a geostationary satellite, names RCS telecommunications satellites, a time synchronization experiment between the time scales of the Istituto Elettrotecnico Nazionale (IEN) and other European laboratories was started in July 1988 and is still in progress. The results obtained in the first year of comparisons are presented and possible solutions to the satellite position determination problem are considered together with the measurement results of the receiving station delay performed at IEN.
