This report examines the source of the scale difference between Transit and Global Positioning System GPS satellite point positioning and infers the relationships in scale between the WGS 84 frame, as realized by its implementations through Transit and GPS satellite data reductions, and other terrestrial reference frames. The results clearly illustrate the important distinction between the definition of a coordinate system and the realization of a reference frame....
