No, I said:

"Radar stitching requires 3msec synchronization and
timestamping, throughout the entire area being stitched,
often a radius of up to 1000 km."

Amongst your misrepresentations of my statement are:

1. "3msec" becomes "precisely syncronized"

2. "area being stitched" becomes "around all airports in the world"

No, I'm trying to point out that you are an ignoranmus in this context
with your "within some minutes is plenty" blanket statements.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
