Hi all. I was asked to measure the phase stability (and phase variations) at the IF output of a mixer.  We have the frequency offset (FO) option in the vna, and i'm wondering if it's possible to make this measure simply using the FO option, given the RF input to the mixer can be on port 1, and the IF output in port 2. The LO signal will come from a synthetizer (sincronyzed with the vna).

Thanks for any advice
