Can you provide more details on how the Unknown Thru Calibration works on the E5071C and how to apply it? The on-line manual does not describe the theory-of-operation or use-model.

Here are some questions:
1) Is the Unknown-Thru method a modification to the cal kit? Is this just a correction method for the standard thru which I presume is a matched Zo, lossless, and  zero delay?
2) Is the Unknown Thru characterized with SOL calibration standards?
3) What's the role in setting "approximate offset delay value" for the Unknown Thru?
