If you look at the binary of the word that goes into a DDS adder, the ones 
with more low order bits have closer in spurs.  Think of that word as a 
fraction, binary point on the left rather than right.

If your adder word is 0.001 (binary) it will divide by 8, no spurs.
If you have 0.00100001, it will divide by a little less than 8 and have spurs.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
