hi all,

there are several discussions in the forum about 75ohm DUT measurement using 50ohm network analyzer however my condition is slighlty different.

1) i have 75ohm cal kit, 75ohm cable and 50ohm to 75ohm adaloss pad adapter and E5071C.

can i just connect the adapter first, then cable, then DUT and performing the SOLT calibration directly using 75ohm cal kit?

i would change the system impedance Zo to 75ohm. 

it would be different method from here and bypass the 50ohm calibration completely.
