Test Fixture: Bare copper strip with 4 threaded 50 ohm SMAs

VBA Macro Used: Balanced Cable Measurement (found on Agilent website)

Problem:

I am attempting to test a 75 Ohm shielded twisted pair cable on the ENA, and am usure how to set up the calibration and fixture simulator settings to perform an accurate test. I am running the VBA macro mentioned above to test for Impedance and Insertion Loss, and am recording some very ackward results. I have one primary conductor hooked up to ports 1 and 3, and the other primary conductor hooked up to ports 2 and 4. Please help.
