differential s11 and input impedance measurement with HP8714

Hello,

I am trying to measure a differential planar antenna with a HP8714ET. Specifically I am trying to achieve S11, Can I use
this HP8714ET as a 2-port, with Reflection port being port-1 and Transmission port being port-2.
I looked at the datasheet and there was some difference with 8714ES and ET models (ET being fundamentally a 2-port VNA).

And does the calibration differ form the normal refletction calibration in any way? Do I have to calibrate the Transmission port the same way as the reflection port?

thank you,

Karri

[EDIT: calibration question added]
