A novel calibration theory for dual six-port network analyzers is presented. The strict separation of the procedure into an establishment of the complex measurement ability and an analyzer error coefficient determination leads to a closed form theory for performing a dual six-port calibration using a general TNA procedure . It is possible to apply all known self-calibration procedures to a dual six-port. As will be seen, the well known TRL method is a special case of the genaral TNA technique.
