Can I use my calibration kit with one type of connector and then use an adapter to measure a different type of connector?

re:calibration kit with different types of connector 
Generally, you should always calibrate your test setup in the same type of connector that you plan to use when making measurements. Inserting an adapter after the setup is calibrated effectively invalidates the calibration. However, if you must insert an adapter to facilitate a connection, remember that the adapter will add to the measurement uncertainty and its presence must be considered. The effective directivity will then be the sum of the corrected directivity plus the reflection of theĀ adapter.
