Coaxial switch - maximum DC power

Hello,

1) Could you help me to select coaxial electro-mechanical switch for freq up to 26.5 GHz with 3.5 mm connectors. In our measurements we need to switch PNA-X between three different meas setups (two different probe stations and meas in coaxial). Switching will be performed only in the cold condition. If I understand right to implement this we need one switch driver (11713B 24V) and two four port switches. 
In specifications I saw "RF input power (max): 1 watt average, 100 watts peak" but didn't found maximum ratings for DC current/voltage/power.
Is it a right choose to buy 8767K-024 switches for our setup if we planned to bias RF signal with DC up to 100V and expecting currents up to 1A?

2) I got quotation for N5242 where I see following lines:
N5242A-200
N5242AS-H85
N5242AS-285
Are front panel access loops (jumpers) included in this configuration?

3) Is it safe to connect 2.92mm bias tees directly 3.5mm PNA ports?

Thank you and best regards,
Oleg Tokmakov
