No sweat, glad you found the problem!

If you still have "funny" performance, it's possible the generator still has a problem, maybe a loop oscillation.  If you're unfamiliar with SMA connectors (which have been around about 50 years and are extremely common in UHF-SHF-microwave gear), then I'm guessing you'll be unfamiliar with a *lot* of the parts inside the RF enclosure; although the 103 series only went up to about 175 MHz or so, it was "cloned" from the 102 family which could operate to 1024 MHz and thus uses a lot of microwave components (mostly surface-mount chip devices, some very minitature), even though the design is almost 30 years old now.

Yes, the RF step attenuator is quite something.  I did a lot of the electrical development work there, but we had this mechanical engineer named Henry Filip who was brilliant when it came to drive and actuator mechanisms, and he was responsible for the attenuator's mechanics.
