A good article which would be even better if the distinction between "dB" and "dBm" was made. The problem is hinted at between eqn. 24 and eqn. 25, but is very clear in eqns. 28, 29, & 30. The differences between signal levels should be in "dB", not "dBm".

Very good article, the subject is well explained. From the results in Eq 31 you say that the DUT is a standard good LNA, is it through experience that you know what is a good and bad measurement and what value would you class as a poor performing LNA.
