For the paper entitled ˇ°Power Handling Capabilities for RF Filtersˇ± on IEEE Microwave Magazine, Oct. 2007. pp88-97,
There is an error in this paper on page 90, equation (1). It should read: 




There is another error on page 93, figure 5, the title of the figure shall read ˇ°Eigen Mode Single Cavity Modelingˇ±, not ˇ°Eight Mode ˇ­ˇ±.


On pgae 90 (right column), "At high altitude H (ft), this formula is often used to convert height to pressure ...". It should read " .... H (Kft) ....".
