AbstractSpectral sidelobes of QPSK, OQPSK, IJF-OQPSK, and SQAM modulated signals after nonlinear amplification are compared. It is known that OQPSK has lower spectral sidelobes than QPSK. However, in the presence of frequency selective fading, a decision-feedback adaptive equalizer is able to equalize the QPSK signal but not the OQPSK signal. By using phase pre-distortion on the OQPSK waveform before nonlinear amplification, not only is the adaptive equalizer able to equalize this signal, its spectral sidelobes are also reduced. Simulations are presented to confirm these results.
