Is that necessary here? If you hang a resistor on the anode to represent
the wanted load resistance, then the pi network transforms that so that
you see 50 ohms looking into the antenna socket. I think the source
impedance of the instrument measuring the 50ohms doesn't matter.
PS the other day you said we all make mistakes. My turn yesterday - I
was mad at someone after a phone call, and a moment's inattention put
150W up the input of my network analyser. First time in 30 years.
