Hi John etc,
I've been reading all the posts and greatly appreciate the help. I may end  
up getting a 11729C, these seem to be reasonably priced.
I've tried two ways to calibrate my setup: one was to detune the OCXO's by  
>20Hz, and measure the resulting beat frequency level.

Another was to use our FireFox signal generator to add a 10.0001MHz  signal 
-30dB below the carrier into the DUT output using a  power combiner, and 
measuring the resulting 100Hz spur.
Both methods result in output spurs that are within <2dB of  expected.
I will try the hints from everyone,

**************Start the year off right.  Easy ways to stay in shape.
