Table 1 Mean and median values of the number of observations normalised by the number of baselines (#obs), of the formal errors of the observations (\(\sigma _{\mathrm {obs}}\)) and of the formal errors of the UT1−UTC estimates (\(\sigma _{\mathrm {UT1}}\))

From: Probing a southern hemisphere VLBI Intensive baseline configuration for UT1 determination
