Re: [10GBT] THP coefficient set clarification & robustness

Thanks. We'd been going off Gottfried's presentation, I'll look at yours to See  How  you Scaled  or varied the line. I recall the Siemon  line was pretty pristine

    Hi George,

    The results shown in golden_1_1104 were based on the Siemon HCC
    measured data, which was obtained from the reflector.  (Slide 3
    gives the URL.)  The THP polynomial sets that we evaluated are
    listed on slide 4.  Let me know if there are any interpretation
    ambiguities, and I'll try to help you get to the bottom of it.
