Is it possible to open a Touchstone file on the E5071C, and if so how? On other Windows based VNAs, such as the


  • Keysight PNA-X
  • Instruments from Copper Mountain
  • R&S
  • L A Techniques
  • Even the $500 VNWA !!!!

it is possible to important a Touchstone file, plot it, add port extensions, perform the IFT to get the time domain etc. But I can't see any way of reading in a Touchstone file on the E5071C. Only saving Touchstone files, and recalling state files. Am I missing something?


I've got what I believe is the latest XP firmware (A.11.24). I know the later B firmware needs a Windows 7 disk. Does that provide much extra functionality over A.xx.yy firmware of the XP disks. In particular, can the B.xx.yy firmware read a Touchstone file?
