Come to think of it... it would be fun to see if there is a time-error 
correlation on location on sky. It would help to indicate multi-path 
errors and possibly be instructive to identify and mitigate multi-path 
sources. Could potentially also show the difference of antenna 
multi-path handling capabilities.
