test port extension cables

Hello,

I'm about to buy some new test port extension cables for my 8510B.

I have a 3.5mm cal kit, but I thought maybe I should get my test port extension cables in 2.92mm, so I can test both 3.5mm and 2.92mm devices.

Would it cause any unforseen calibration errors if I go from my 2.4mm S-Parameter test set, through a set of 2.4mm to 2.92mm extension cables, and calibrate the system from 2 to 20 GHz with a 3.5mm calibration kit?

Thanks.
