PNA 5230C saving citifiles

Question asked by sydmil on Feb 20, 2009
Latest reply on Feb 22, 2009 by sydmil
I was wondering if anyone might be able to help me with the following problem I have saving the citifiles.

The problem I have is that sometimes the citifile data is not saved correctly. In the saved file I get a column of magnitudes and angles, but the angle value is only either 0 or 180.
However, using the same data saves format I sometimes get the correct data format (see example below).


The data saves format as follows:
Citifile Content: Auto
Citifile Format: Log Mag/Angle dB/deg

I save using “save as citifile formatted data”.

Would anyone have any suggestion as to what might be going on ?

Thanks you!
