An adaptive receiver is presented in this paper for the reception of linearly modulated signals transmitted over a time- and frequency-selective fading channel. The channel is modeled as a truncated power series which represents the dispersive fading channel as a sum of three elementary flat-fading channels. The proposed receiver consists of a sequence estimator with a parallel channel estimator. The channel estimator recovers the instantaneous fading processes associated with each elementary channel and filters them to generate one-step predictions of each fading process. Some implementation difficulties and solutions are also discussed. Computer simulations using quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK) and channels with moderate delay spreads and fade rates have been used to evaluate the performance of the receiver. The results show that our technique has potential in channels with delay spread of about 20%, signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) greater than 15 dB, and applications requiring bit-error rates (BER's) less than 10-2
