Tx Charles for the interest you give to my question Richie find
the solution I response to him privately but some other seem to
be interested I copy the message send to him:
Tx, if I increased the "time domain points per cycle" from 100 to
5000, the "bode analysis points per cycle" from 50 to 100 and the
tolerance from 1% to .01% the artifact disappear.
So much to learn and so little time."
