We consider a communication scenario in which a message is received in the presence of partial-time Gaussian jamming and additive white Gaussian noise. We consider a quasi-static channel, in which the amplitude and phase are constant over each packet transmission. The receiver does not know the amplitude and phase of the incoming signal, which symbols are jammed, or even the statistics of the jammer, such as the jamming power and jamming probability. In this scenario, the receiver must accurately estimate the parameters of the channel and the jamming to achieve good performance. We apply the expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm to iteratively approximate the maximum-likelihood (ML) estimator for all of the parameters. We find that the overall performance of the EM algorithm is very sensitive to the initial estimates, so we propose a new initial estimator that offers good performance. The EM algorithm approach requires pilot symbols to resolve a phase ambiguity. Thus, we also present a blind estimation algorithm to avoid the reduction in overall code rate from the use of pilot symbols
