By using codes of rate 2/3 followed by 8-PSK modulation, a gain of 3-6 dB is obtained over uncoded 4-PSK, for an ideal coherent transmission on the white Gaussian channel. In the presence of carrier phase offset, it has been shown that trellis-coded 8-PSK systems are more sensitive than uncoded 4-PSK. A more robust performance can be achieved by using rate 2/3 trellis-coded 8-PSK signals and 4-PSK signals in a time-varying manner. Only the mapper from the output of the binary convolutional code to the signal point number to be transmitted has to be periodically time-varying. In its simplest form, trellis-coded 8-PSK and 4-PSK signals alternate in time. An examination has also been made of systems where the mixture of 8-PSK and 4-PSK signals varies, with a short periodic sequence of time-varying mapping rules. The distance spectra and error probability are evaluated with and without phase offset. Simulation results of bit error rate (BER) and performance of the recovery loop (S curve) are presented. It is concluded that systems which are more robust against jitter can be achieved by means of time-varying hybrid trellis-coded 8/4-PSK systems
