A coding scheme for an additive Gaussian channel is developed using a noisy feedback link and -dimensional elementary signals with no bandwidth constraint. This allows error-free transmission at a rate where is slightly less than the channel capacity . When there is no noise in the feedback channel, the coding scheme reduces to a -dimensional generalization of the coding scheme of Schalkwijk and Kailath. In addition, the expression for the probability of error is determined when , the time of transmission rate, is finite. The scheme is also compared with the best codes that use only the forward channel.
