Network analyzer is a spectrum analyzer with signal source to measure
the pass band characteristics. It could probably be done with a noise
source and the spectrum analyzer or manually using a signal generator
and detector, though that might be slow to get the necessary detail.

I'd be inclined to go with an external DSP audio filter if the inherent
selectivity wasn't quite narrow enough. But I tend to prefer wider
rather than narrower so I can tell what's going on around the QSO I'm
