The Canadian mobile satellite (MSAT) channel has been modeled as the sum of lognormal and Rayleigh components to represent foliage attenuation and multipath fading, respectively. Several authors have applied trellis coded modulation (TCM) schemes to this channel, estimating the bit error performance via computer simulation. In the present paper, analytical expressions are derived for the pairwise error probability (PEP) of TCM schemes over this channel under ideal interleaving. The analysis is applied to three detection strategies: ideal coherent detection, pilot-tone aided detection, and differential detection. The results are substantiated by means of computer simulation. In addition, first-order statistics of absolute and differential phases of a shadowed Rician process are examined
