COmplete Noob: 8510C phase measurement

Good day all,

I am a physics undergrad working in a photonic crystal lab, where we take scatter data from a macro-crystal (scaled up crystal) of  micro waves from about 7GHz to 17 GHz , for instance.

Our phase measurements have been  erratic.

What is the first order of business when determining the phase measurement ability of the 8510C...? I am guessing that one would plug the output of the sweeper to the input (8517B port 1 to port 2). If this is true, what should I expect ?

thank you,
