Abstract: We determine the relative separations of the sources in the triangle 1803+784/1928+738/2007+777 with submilliarcsecond accuracy from global 8.4 GHz VLBI observations. We remove the ionospheric contribution to the phase-delay observable using ionospheric total electron content estimates obtained from Global Positioning System (GPS) data. The triangular geometry provides a consistency check through sky closure.
