This paper addresses the problem of blind channel equalization in the context of digital communications. Recent results have shown that certain operations applied to the source signal at the transmitter help in the blind identification and equalization of the channel at the receiver. In this paper, the baseband data signal is multiplied with a chirp sequence. Exploiting certain structural properties arising from this operation, a batch-type algorithm is obtained for calculating the equalizer's coefficients. Conditions on the chirp sequence parameters are obtained that guarantee an equalization solution. A low-complexity adaptive algorithm is also proposed. Finally, extensive simulations, and comparisons with other well-known blind techniques, illustrate the excellent performance of this algorithm.
