Hi all, i have a question about measure power with a VNA(pna e8364c ). We are measuring the Allan Variance with a power meter(e4418b), but it seems the sensor it's kind of "slow" for the lowest integration time we have to get(about 0.1s). There's a sensor upgrade overthere, but i'm wondering if using the pna as a power meter(with the unratioed measure option) could be a better (faster)option. The power meter could be use it only for calibrate the pna.

Tell me if this could work, or it would be necessary to upgrade to the "fast" sensor for the power meter.  Thanks
