Network Analyzer EXT AM Connector

Dear Sir:

      I own a 8753C network analyzer and I want to amplitude modulate the RF output signal.

      I read the manual and it says I can connect a signal to the EXT AM connector in the back of the NA.

      Above all, I do not want to damage my 8753C.

      The manual does not go into detail about the maximum input power, or maximum voltage, or current level.

       I want to amplitude modulate the RF output signal 100 percent with a 1000 KHz square wave.   Please tell me the Pin max, Vin max, and Iin max, and can you tell me what input signal, voltage level - power level, for a square wave waveform that will 100 percent amplitude modulate a given RF output signal.     Assume I want to use a zero dBm RF output signal in CW mode.

       Thank you for your past replies and, hopefully, someone can answer this question.
