Calibration with pigtails - best method

Question asked by wpetersen on Mar 9, 2011

I am calibrating directly at pigtail ends for measurement of board parasitics.   A few questions:
- Is there a paper somewhere that describes the best method of doing this?
- Is there a rule of thumb for determining how many averages to use when doing a cal?
- Do I need to define a user cal in my E5071C since I'm not using a cal kit or is it acceptable to select a cal kit and not actually use it?
- Defining a user cal seems complicated.  Is there a paper somewhere that describes in simple steps how to do this for the E5071C?
Thanks.
