Frequency multiplier characterization

Characterizing Frequency Multipliers : 

We work in the automotive radar band. As a part of the measurement set up, we would like to characterize the frequency multipliers that we use in our setup.  We have an E8361A with the frequency extenders up to 110GHz. The extenders are connected through a millimeter wave test set controller N5260A.  The multipliers have a coaxial input and a WR12 output. We use typically x6,x3,x2 multipliers.

We would need to use SMC for doing the characterization. For the setup, we would need to use the standard port on the VNA and then for the WR12 output we would need to use the extender. Is this possible? If so how can this be set up?
