Locating and Measuring High Q Resonances

Question asked by SMQ on Oct 1, 2012

I appreciate the expert's help. Have been searching in all the manuals but could not figure the answer yet. 

If one is on the lookout for a very sharp high Q but relatively weak peak in a wide range of spectrum using a network analyzer, what should be done not to "miss" the peak. Say the Q is 10^5, what should be the relation between the number of points, scanning BW, and the IF BW? How much is the possibility of missing such a peak and how does it depend on the type of the network analyzer? I am currently using the 4395a model.

Any related references will also be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks and hope to hear from you guys.
