A technique is proposed for the synchronization of widely separated microwave oscillators via satellite transponder. As a result of calculations of the phase shifts over the paths, computation of expected signal-to-noise ratios, and experiments on a 15-km line of sight path, synchronization to within 0.05 cycle rms for 10-GHz oscillators should be possible.
