Adding an update here. During any experiments that I am aware of, we did not experience any signs of delay.
I do understand what you are asking, can the speed of the stream be different in different locations and cause a slight delay between feeds?
It sounds very possible. But then again, in our case, all the receivers were on the same system, which was on Comcast cable TV modems. The best I can offer you an answer, I do not believe anyone noticed any difference at each of the locations.
Your question has prompted me to ask our transmitter owners if they noticed anything odd with the stream we were sending them. To the best of their ability to answer this question, they said no, they did not notice a delay different from another owner’s feed.
Perhaps, things would have been different if it was possible to receive all 8 transmitters at the same time, which is impossible to do under todays conditions. Because there was not enough RF power to get two separate signals to cross each other and they were too far apart in mileage to hear more then one signal at the same time.
I am sure though, there would have had to been some kind of co-channel heterodyne noise evident where the carriers would mix together, but none of our transmitters were close enough to witness that issue.
