Abstract: The scope of this guideline is to make the reader aware of the constraints arising when attempting probe level calibration at higher frequencies, especially above 110GHz. The causes of generation of un-wanted radiation modes are first briefly described, and an approach to identify their impact on the calibration quality is provided to the reader with general first order guidelines. The report then describes the approaches that have been investigated and quantified as viable methods to reduce the generation of unwanted modes. Finally, an example of a custom built Thru Reflect Line (TRL) kit with suggestions on how to create the lines and the reflect conditions are given for illustrative purposes.
