Hi, I need some clarification regarding power calibration on N5242A.

Power calibration is the calibration we do towards the power output of the Network Analyzer instead of DUT. When we are doing power calibration from powerlevel -10dbm to 10dbm, and we can take variety of measurement which is within the power level that we have calibrated right? Do we have to do power calibration for each different power level measurement? For example, -10dbm to 10dbm, -10dbm to 8dbm, -8dbm to 5dbm, do we have to do power calibration prior to the measurement of different level?

What is the frequency reference for the power calibration? is it according to the frequency we have set? do we have to do power calibration if we use different frequency reference?

Thank you very much for the reply.
