I would like to sweep the RF and LO and measure a fixed IF with an N5230 (Option 80).  In looking at the help files:

     http://na.tm.agilent.com/pna/help/PNAWebHelp/help.htm

it seems I can sweep the IF (either RF or LO sweeps, the other fixed) but to sweep the RF/LO I'd have to control the external RF Source and do a set of CW measurements.

     Is there something I'm missing?  I remember (from a lot of years ago) being able have a network analyzer directly control the RF Source on a local HPIB bus for this type of measurement and having passthrough commands to control the RF Source for other measurements.

Thanks,
