Power Sweep for Amplifier Gain Measurements

Hi,  

I'd like to complete gain measurements, using a power sweep.  I expect ~ 44 dB of gain, but I'm seeing losses of  -10 dB!

Sweep power low = - 45 dBm, Sweep power high = 10 dBm.  A confirmed through calibration was finished, at 80.5 MHz.

A frequency "sweep" (80.5 MHz, zero span) shows expected gain values.  

What am I doing wrong?  

Thanks,

Greg
