And the narrow notch for the harmonic is not required anyway, since the 
fundamental is fare enough, therefore a high Q  LC trap will work 
better, also with the setting of the biasing af the active devices the 
spures could be reduced to [ just observe the output with a spectrum 
analyzer and set the bias of one site to minimum harmonics, there will 
be no common optimum for all harmonics, but a good compromise could be 
achieved ]
