Balanced transmission line measurements using 2 port N5230C?

Question asked by ChrisC on May 19, 2014
Confusion abound, trying to figure out the most reasonable method to make balanced transmission line measurements with my lowly 2-port 50GHz N5230C. I'm reasonably sure I can make these measurements without the use of baluns by careful termination of the unused ports during single-ended measurement. Knowing I will have to make several measurements has me wondering if our N4693 E-Cal can be used as the termination? 

Lastly, can the PNA take care of combining the s2p data sets?

Thanks!
