Calculating Peak Power from Power Meter reading

Question asked by rajput001 on Nov 26, 2012
hi,
I am using 8481B power sensor with a 53148A power meter.
my question is regarding the peak power calculation.
if i want to measure the peak power of an RF pulse (lets say i am giving a 1 % duty cycle pulse from a signal generator) should i add to the output reading of the power meter (in this case , should i add 20 dB) for compensating the "off" time of RF?
