TRL calibration accuracy with high mismatch

Question asked by FRITZ39 on Jul 9, 2013

If I do a TRL calibration with a test fixture that only has 5 dB of return loss, will the calibrated results
be as good as a test fixture with a 30 dB return loss? I know the calibration should remove the 
discontinuities, but if I'm trying to remove some large mismatch from a DUT, is there a limit of how
much the calibration routine can remove and still get the same result?
