Gain and resistor value sweep


I am trying to simulate the common base circuit here: https://www.mediafire.com/?hbycilby2nm3ntb  The input is a 5V square wave pulse. The output is the collector voltage of the transistor. I want to sweep the value of R1, and plot the voltage gain versus R1. How can I get such a plot?

I also have questions about electronic fundamentals. Are the small signal circuit and the DC biasing circuit correct?
On a protoboard, am I correct to measure the small signal voltage gain by measuring the collector's voltage peak-to-peak and divide it by the input voltage peak-to-peak (which is 5V in this case)?

Thank You

You can perform parametric sweep and use performance analysis in PSpice waveform analysis for generating Voltage gain Vs R1 plot. You need to declare a value of R1 as the GLOBAL parameter and then sweep global parameter in desired range. You also need to use appropriate measurement for GAIN calculation for generating plot.
