Phase Discontinuity

Hi all,

I am attempting to measure the phase difference between two settings of an amplifier. The phase **** over the entire band is greater than 360 degrees, sometimes greater than 720 degrees. Because the phase measurement is limited to +/-180 degrees, when the phase exceeds these limits it is reset to the end of the opposite limit resulting in an annoying discontinuity.

How would you make the phase measurement continuous using the E8362B PNA series Micorwave network Analyzer?

If this is not possible, any recommendations on removing the discontinuity from the data in ADS?

Thanks for all your help and time in advance
