Dear Sir:

      I was reading the Agilent application note, "Understanding and Improving the Network Analyzer Dynamic Range",  page 4 of the application note says:

Averaging can only be used on ratioed measurements, and will not work on measurements using a single receiver channel.

Can you please identify exactly which measurements the author is referring to when he identifies some measurements as "ratioed measurements"?   

Can you also explain exactly what he means by measurements using a "single receiver" channel?

These definitions can be interpreted in many ways and for "applicable use" exact explanations must be asserted, in terms of the buttons we press on the network analyzer.
