    Yes, there is an ARRL errata for this page: Page 6-41 In the second paragraph, the first sentence should read “Unlike a symmetrical FIR filter, frequency components of the input signal can be delayed by different amounts.”

    Hi Dave,
    On page 6-41 of the Extra manual, where IIR filters are described, I am reading that “unlike a symmetrical FIR filter, all frequency components of the input are delayed by the same amount.”
    Question E715’s correct answer A implies that delaying all frequency components by the same amount is a feature of FIR filters.
    This sounds like a contradiction. Which filter has this as a feature? Perhaps I am missing something in my understanding? Thanks, Reiner N2PEZ
