Symmetry is absolutely required in the Ten Tec scheme because they use both
sides of the filter. One side for LSB and CW and the other side for USB. If
the filter is off even the slightest then you loose either lows or highs in
the passband. LSB and CW are excellent but using the 1.8 Khz filter for USB
can be a problem. I have tried to adjust the oscillators to get a balance
but have not yet been successful. Have not tried the Inrad filters and maybe
that is what I need to do.
