Hi all,

I'm having difficulty trying to set up an enhanced cal.  I'm doing some PA testing under pulsed conditions and attempting to use the analog inputs on the back of an N5242A PNA-X to calculate PAE.  Because I'm pulsing the PA, S21 and the B receiver measurements are off if I do a standard 2-port cal and leave port 2 energized (at least I think that's what is happening).  The help files seem to indicate that there should be a way to perform and/or downgrade from a 2-port cal to an enhanced cal, but I can't find any details on how this can be done.  I can't use mechanical standards because I don't have access to any.

I'm running the latest firmware (A.09.90.05).

Has anyone here been able to set up an enhanced cal with an ECal module?
