    The eigenstructure of bidiagonal Hessenberg-Toeplitz matrices is determined. These matrices occur as skeleton matrices of finite-state machines generating certain asymmetrically DC-constrained binary sequences that can be used for simulating pilot tracking tones in digital magnetic recording. The eigenstructure is used to calculate the Shannon upper bound to the entropy of the finite state machine as well as the power spectrum of the maxentropic process generated by it.
