N9923A Calibration with CCANTENNA-DK?

Question asked by ktown on Dec 1, 2013

We've recently purchased an N9923A for impedance matching on <1GHz and 2.4GHz boards, but unfortunately the supported calibration kits are all quite difficult to source or expensive.  We've ordered an 85515A cal tool, but it won't be available for 5 weeks.

Is it possible to calibrate the N9923A using inexpensive O/S/L boards such as those present in the CCANTENNA-DK kit from TI, which is easy to order and available for a very modest $49? http://www.ti.com/tool/cc-antenna-dk

I tried calibrating using the three O/S/L boards in this kit and selecting 3.5mm connectors in the calibration wizard, but the results are all over the map measuring a known good antenna at 868MHz (from the same kit), presumably because we're not selecting the correct cal kit in the wizard.

Is there any way to use these boards (or something similar) with the N9923A for calibration?
