A detailed theoretical analysis of multichannel coherent CPFSK communications systems is presented. The analysis accounts for the crosstalk between adjacent channels, the intersymbol interference and correlation between noise samples stemming from the limited IF bandwidth the non-Gaussian statistics of the noise at the decision gate, and the impact of the laser phase noise. It is found that the IF bandwidth needed to avoid intersymbol interference is 2.2 bit rates for a modulation index m=1; it is larger for other modulation index values. For m=1, receiver sensitivity is within 1 dB of the shot noise limit, and the electrical domain channel spacing can be as small as 2.05 bit rates with 1-dB sensitivity penalty. The foregoing conclusions are valid for a negligibly narrow linewidth; the degradation due to phase noise is shown to be modest as long as the linewidth does not exceed 1% of the bit rate if m=1. Larger linewidth can be tolerated if the modulation index is larger than unity
