Hi every one.The spectrum analyzer in VNA is a nice function,but it still has some problem.It has a probability to record image signal.The patent said:With an unknown muilt-tone input RF spectrum,the chance of recording an image signal at any RF frequency for a multi-tone input RF spectrum  of some arbitrary period is approximately (N*RBW/IFBW)^N.But I can't understand this equation and want to learn about how to calculate.Dose it mean that spectrum analyze result shown on the screen is not 100% truth?Thanks a lot.
