Iterative decoding of two dimensional systematic convolutional codes has been termed “turbo”-(de)coding. It is shown that the simple soft output viterbi algorithm (SOVA) meets all the requirements for iterative decoding if an a priori term is added. With simple 4 and 16 state codes surprisingly good performance is achieved for the Gaussian and Rayleigh channel with a very small degradation relative to the complicated MAP algorithm
