Good point. Thanks

Yes that's right. Using gnuradio firdes was a first hack with acceptable
error as the fft shows. A better way is to use sinc() and a window function.
Had a look into my "Signale and Systeme" script.
There is also a software called winfilter if you want a 'classic' filter.
It works well under wine.

I missed that too. A fix version is attached.
