Abstract

We present the development and efforts towards providing global baselines compatible with the innovative Korean VLBI Network receiver system.  The launching and development of the jet from an Active Galactic Nucleus is still a topic of much debate, with the detection of the formation of the recollimation shock a crucial indicator of the actual mode of jet production. The astrometric measurement of the site of the AGN core is the best diagnostic in this study. The KVN itself has a resolution too crude to trace the predicted core-shifts at millimeter wavelength, so the addition of longer, global, baselines are essential to investigate this exciting area of research.
