Abstract : A Raleigh fading model of a communication channel is used to compare two receivers for a coded, dual diversity, frequency-shift-keyed transmitter. Both receivers are suboptimum; but, unlike the optimum receiver, they can be easily realized. One -- the repetitive receiver -- ignores the diversity and used only the structure of an algebraic code to combat errors. The other -- the diversity receiver -- uses maximal-ratio dual diversity combining and the structure of a less complex algebraic code to reduce errors. (Author)
