For example; given s-parameters for a transmission line of a 10" length
can the matrix be split into two 5" lengths. Assume that the passive
s-parameter obeys reciprocity. 


The reason I'm asking is that I have a test fixture on each end of my
measurement that I'm trying to de-embed. The insertion loss can be
subtracted very easily, but the return loss and other parameters have a
great deal of error dealing with de-embedding from one side of the DUT
only. I'm hoping to break the fixture into two equal parts without
having a direct point of measurement to do so otherwise.
