Re: Day 2: What Is a VNA & How Does It Work?

Copying obarrett back to the top of the list for AL to see.

My 2-port DUT has female N connectors, the two patch cables from my VNA ports and the 3 ports on my VNA calibration tee have N-Male connectors.  Doing my SOLT calibration, I install female-female barrels on the calibration tee, and use another barrel to join the patch cables for the Thru calibration.  Should I still enter the reference plane corrections into the VNA for best accuracy?

thanks!
