A new derivation is presented of a previously known relationship for phasing N equal-amplitude, equally spaced (in frequency) sinusoids so that the peak-to-average power ratio of their sum is 2.6 dB. The method of derivation provides intuitive insight into why this result is possible, and shows that the 2.6 dB figure is obtained independently of N as long as N is large. Any phase or frequency modulation can be applied simultaneously to all N sinusoids without altering this result
