In this letter we characterize the substantial difference between two channel estimation approaches, namely the sample-spaced (SS) and the fractionally-spaced (FS) channel impulse response (CIR) estimators. The achievable performance of decision-directed channel estimation (DDCE) methods employing both the SS- and the FS-CIR estimators is analyzed in the context of an OFDM system. The performance of the two estimation methods is compared and it is shown that the DDCE scheme employing the projection approximation subspace tracking (PAST)-aided FS-CIR estimator outperforms its SS-CIR estimator-based counterpart
