8363B/C Pulsed S-parameters: How fast?

Question asked by dhfx on Mar 18, 2009
We are trying to speed up a T/R module tester. One test is to measure full 2-port S-parameters over about 20 frequencies. The module is operating in pulsed mode (50 us PRI, 20% duty cycle) and we are using the PNA in narrowband mode (1 kHz BW) with option H08 installed.

I believe Ed Crean has already asked this (I've looked at his posts), but what is the fastest way to do this series of measurements on a PNA, and what kind of time will it give?
