    Dynamic range is defined as the difference between the data trace of the transmission magnitude with maximum test port output power and both
    test ports through-connected on the one hand and the RMS value of the data trace of the transmission magnitude produced by noise and crosstalk  
    with test ports short-circuited on the other. The specification is valid without system error correction and at 10Hz measurement bandwidth. The
    dynamic range can be increased by using a measurement bandwidth of 1Hz.
 
   1 Without consideration of measurement uncertainty.
