8 Erratum and Addendum

After publication of this note I was contacted by Mike Gingell, KN4BS and learned that he is the inventor of this circuit along with others of this class known as ``sequence asymmetric polyphase networks.'' As expected, he was aware of most the results here with the possible exception of the application of Saraga's methods to form a Chebychev network. However, he told me that Saraga was one of his PhD examiners, so I don't think Saraga's methods were completely unknown to him.

Here are some references that he sent me that give more history.

In addition, my comments on the op amp circuit are incorrect and should be ignored. Mike Gingell suggests doing away with the op amps altogether to get the best sideband suppression.
