A class of binary recurrent codes for correcting independent errors is given which has guaranteed error-limiting properties. These codes can be simply decoded using threshold decoding, and will recover from any decoding error caused by either an uncorrectable transmission error or a temporary malfunction of the encoder or decoder. A number of such codes are given along with a synthesis procedure. The results of a computer simulation are given which indicate that these codes perform better in some situations than other codes using threshold decoding.
