You asked some questions and several people have tried to help you. I think one 
issue is that you mention measuring phase angle with a voltmeter and people 
naturally think "phase detector."  An example is Slide 20 on page 213 in this 
reference: http://hpmemoryproject.org/an/pdf/HP-3048A_cal_man.pdf  (I happened 
to have worked with Terry Decker, one of he coauthors, at Hughes Aircraft a long 
time ago)

As Bob Camp said earlier, both sources are not on nearly the same frequency but 
exactly the same frequency.  If you are thinking of measuring something other 
than this, then we have a semantics issue and need clarification of what it is 
you want to know.
