PNA Power Sweep, how to proceed?

Highlighted

Hi,

 

I would like to perform a Power Sweep on an Agilent E8364C PNA.

I went through the Programming Reference and found commands for frequency and power sweep.

However there is little information on how the data is stored after a sweep.

 

How can I perform a double sweep:

 

Sweep frequency - for each frequency do a power sweep and measure Gain Compression.

 

I don't want to have to break this into a step-by-step process (1. Set Freq - 2. Set Power, Measure Gain - 4. Increment Power, Measure Gain... ...- Increment Frequency, repeat etc...)

 

Is there anyway I can avoid the step-by-step approach?

 

Thank you in advance,

Ok,

I found out the E8346C does not have option 086 and so I can't do it in a simple way.

 

Does anybody know what the command is for a simple power measurement.

I just went through the entire Programming ref again but could not locate it.

 

Thanks!

 

Nicolas
