The error probability results shown by I. Korn (see ibid., vol.38, no.11, p.1980-6, 1990) indicate that the error floor is higher for systems with decision feedback (DF). It was concluded that DF gives a lower error probability only for smaller values of the normalized bandwidth B/sub t/T of the premodulation Gaussian filter, higher values of the ratio of powers in the direct and diffuse signal components K, and a lower range of signal-to-noise ratio. It is shown that this conclusion is not correct by theoretically analyzing the case of the land mobile channel where K=0 (or - infinity dB) and deriving a simple closed-form expression for the error probability for 1 bit differential detection with DF. It is shown that DF reduces the error probability for all values of B/sub t/T and signal-to-noise ratios. The formula derived can be easily evaluated not only for Gaussian minimum shift keying (GMSK) but for all partial-response continuous-phase-modulation (PRCPM) signals.<>
