Reference to “HANDBOOK OF MICROWAVE COMPONENT MEASUREMENTS WITH ADVANCED VNA TECHNIQUES” Topic 3.4.1 regarding TRL/LRL calibration by Joel P. Dunsmor

I have designed a simple free space measuring setup (X band) for academic purpose. I want to calibrate my free space setup with option 010 (time domain)

  1.       Should I use modify calibration kit option and input S parameters of my measurement setup? If so what S parametersI need? How to include time domain gating?
  2.       Should I calibrate VNA first and then try to implement LRL algorithms myself ? this option will be good for time domain gating but algorithms of Dr Joel’s books might be little tricky in implementation.
  3.       I have N5244 with 010 option.
