How to calculate the mismatch for HP437B power meter

HI All,

I need help to generate my measurement uncertainty for power source.

I ma having power meter HP437B with the 8480 series power sensors.

I try to find in specification the mismatch data for power meter against the 8480 series power sensor but unable to find it.

I looking for the following values:
1) Mismatch gain between generator and sensor
2) Mismatch gain between calibration source and sensor.

This power meter i using is very old which there is limited specification for mismatch not liek the EPM-series where they are the specify mismatch data available.

The both parameter i get is referring to agilent application notes 1449-3 (Fundamental of Rf and microwave power measurement- part 3).

Can any agilent metrology personnel advise on this issue.
