We show that a recently proposed Rudin-Shapiro-like sequence, with balanced weights, has purely singular continuous diffraction spectrum, in contrast to the well-known Rudin-Shapiro sequence whose diffraction is absolutely continuous. This answers a question that had been raised about this new sequence.
