We have developed a method for improving the synchronization of large-signal network analyzers and transferring cross-frequency phase calibrations from a calibrated sampling oscilloscope to the large-signal vector network analyzer on an arbitrary frequency grid. The approach can be applied to the measurement of modulated signals and other waveforms on arbitrary and arbitrarily- fine frequency grids. This translates into the ability to measure complex and arbitrarily long signals traceably with high dynamic range.
