Pulsed power calibration with U2021XA

I would like to perform high-power pulsed measurements using N5242A PNA-X. Since the booster amplifiers are working under pulsed conditions only, I have to do pulsed calibration.

I would like to perform 2-port Enhanced Response and Guided Power Cal with U2021XA USB power sensor. Under CW excitation, the power calibration is performing without problems, but pulsed power calibration fails.

The problem behaves at different frequencies. I am not connecting trigger signal. I set the power meter loss according to the duty cycle. How to use this sensor for calibration?

Best regards,
