If the cable you are testing is near 328 feet, you may need to change the maximum Length limit from 328 to 361 feet. Other limits such as Loop Resistance and Capacitance may need to be changed in proportion to the increase in Length limit if these tests are failing marginally.
 
You are now ready to press MEASURE CABLE PERFORMANCE. You cannot run an AUTOTEST or SAVE the test result.
