I'm not quite convinced yet, even if I only understand rather little of the paper. Especially, on page 3, the set H = {0, 2, 6, 8, 12, 14, 18, 20} is not admissible. Omit the 14, then it works.
Achieving the result quoted without Elliott-Halberstamm or something similar would be quite big news. Any thoughts?
