Freire et al. (2009, MNRAS, 396, 1764) have put forward a technique for timing the double pulsar system PSR J0737-3039A/B (hereafter A and B, respectively). Their technique can be used to determine the sense of rotation of A relative to its orbital plane. In this paper, we present another technique with the same purpose. Two well-known periods, the sidereal day and solar day, are often used to define the spin period of the earth. Their difference is caused by a kinematic effect which correlated…
