I am considering the purchase of an N5230A PNA-L network analyzer. I am interested in learning if this equipment can be used to display the output spectrum of a transmitter. I know that I need to properly attenuate the transmitter output before the network analyzer.

Basically I am asking if the receiver portion of the N5230A can be used independently of the RF source. I am interested only in frequency, no amplitude information is needed.
