I imagine the 1.6ms is only from a "calibrated" receiver. That is one
that has had the constant offset calculated against another receiver
and fixed with the fudge factor. This is say a GPS unit which you
don't wish to dedicate to timekeeping or is only borrowed.

However this is the low end of the level of performance my design should
deliver. A calibrated setup with a good signal should be sub 1ms when
locked on.
