PNA-X Power Levels

Hello PNA-X'ers,

I am having a bad PNA-X day.   

How do I calculate the power sweep range available on my PNA-X.

Is it:

Pmax=Max leveled output power - source attenuation

Pmin=Pmax-power sweep range

Example: from data sheet
Max leveled power = 8 dBm (spec)
Power sweep range 37 dB (spec)
Hence with 20 dB source attenuation, I would be able to achieve:
Pmax=-12 dBm
Pmin=-49 dBm

Or am I missing something?

Thank you
