What RF connector types does QuickCal work with?

The title pretty much says it all! I don't have a FieldFox any more, so can't check in the firmware. 

I would be particulary interested if it supported any connectors that I don't have cal kits for. I've got kits for 

* 3.5 mm (HP 85052B)
* APC7 (HP 85050B)
* N (HP 85032B)
* 7-16 (Anritsu parts, intended for SiteMasters)
* WR90 waveguide (this is a home-made kit, not a professional kit). 

I know someone who has made some BNC "standards", and if the FieldFox could measure them, I'd take the opportunity to do so when I have a FieldFox here for a few days. 

I must say, the QuickCal is pretty impressive. I understand it does not work well on male SMA or 3.5 mm. I assume that is becuase the male nut moves around, so changing the fringing capacitance in a way that is essentially random, so any model of a male SMA would be pretty inaccurate.
