Smith Chart Accuracy

Question asked by Sterling019 on Sep 29, 2010

I need to measure two Type-N(m) devices with my 8753E.  One has a 100ohm impedance and the other has a 150ohm impedance.  I wish to measure the impedance and the reactance of both devices at frequencies below 200MHz.  After I complete the measurement, how do I determine the accuracy or the uncertainty of the measurement???  I know that I should probably be using an Impedance Analyzer, but I do not have one available.  Is the 8753E able to deliver good results for this measurement??  I wanted to have the end result be within 1% of the actual impedance value.

Thanks...
