Microwave Freq Measurement

Hi there,

I would like to know if i can make microwave freq measurements using a 8563E SA that i have with accuracies similar to a high end microwave freq counter?
How do i measure the frequency accuracy and error?
Do i have to make multiple measurements and then perform allan deviation/variance as what we normally do using a counter?
If so , if tau = gate time in a counter ..what is it in a SA, is it the sweep time?
Appreciate the help.
