AbstractDesign and performance evaluation of a low-complexity equalizer for recently standardized spectral efficient Feher patented quadrature phase shift keying (FQPSK) system  over multipath fading channel is presented. The implementation based on a Feher patented equalizer (FE)  is of a structure with three branches, which are individually used to compensate for a moving fade notch with different locations. These branches are switched by the control signal that is generated based on pseudo-error on-line detection technique. It is demonstrated that for typical aeronautical telemetry RF frequency selective fading channels, having delay spreads in 20 – 200 ns range, the adaptive FE reduces the number of statistical outages by more than 60% without the need for training bits and without increasing the receiver synchronization time.
