G6CJ designed one of these many years ago, using op-amps, and called it the
'Stereocode Unit'. I built one and still use it all the time for CW -
wouldn't do without it. If anyone has access to back issues of the RSGB's
Radcomm magazine, they should be able to find the article in the index.
There was a design for a PCB included as well. Well worth building.
