Importing Cal Kits from "legacy" network analyzers
Cal kit files from "legacy" network analyzers (such as the 8510 or 8753) may not contain information that this VNA requires. Therefore, this VNA may modify the cal kit name, description, standards, and class assignments. You may need to correct these modifications after importing your legacy cal kit to meet your specific requirements.
