By inserting a waveguide switch between the two waveguide couplers of the incident and the reflected signals, the RF power can be fed to test port 1 or 2, depending on the position of the switch.
In this case, the incident signal is measured before the signal passes the waveguide switch, thus the calibration procedure cannot account for the switch errors.
