Plots based on data for individual channels are accessed through this button, e.g. the sensitivity of the channels versus the ($B-V$) color index of the stars, or visiblity amplitude biases. In addition, relative flux contributions from the stations can be calibrated with this widget for 6-way applications.

The calibration works as follows. For the selected type, any plots produced store the corresponding calibration and fit results in a field of the general configuration structure. These numbers are used in the average procedure to compensate visibility biases based on incoherent photons and fixed pattern noise. Remember that BIAS and RELFLUX plots have channel, baseline, and scan indices. For the latter is it advised to only use the listed sub-array configurations.
