OK, So assume an unlikely huge position uncertainly of one meter.    On top of
that let's assume the surveyor got it wrong too and missed by a full
meter.    Both of these added together can only account for about 10%
of what they saw.   Light moves across one meter in about 3nS   You
need to explain 60nS  If the result is because of uncertainty in the
location then the we are talking about 20 meters of position error.
