Hello all and thanks for reading.

If I set the 8970B Noise Figure Meter to one specfic frequency (say 500MHz) and I have no filtering in the test path, what is the operating bandwidth of the instrument? Lets assume the unit under test is a wide band device designed for 500MHz.

I looked in the operating manual and all I could find is that it's resolution is 1MHz but I do not believe that's the BW.

Thanks in advance.
