I've never seen that either.  Most of the network analyzers I have used 
do have APC-7's on them.  However, generally these have either APC-7 to N 
adapters on them or cables attached.  The other end of the cable is 
generally an N or SMA.  A good lab will have both.

It is VERY simple to obtain an N to PL-259 or N to SO-239 adapter.  This 
is not a problem at all.  I have several myself.

Then it is not really a big deal to make up a set of cal standards for an 
open, load and short.

Then you are all set.
