We present a new coding scheme that combines the advantages of a product-like concatenation of Reed-Muller codes with so-called iterative "turbo" decoding and provides powerful unequal error protection abilities. It is shown that various levels of error protection can be realized using a sophisticated encoding scheme for Reed-Muller codes. A discussion of this code construction, the resulting distance profile between the different levels and the iterative decoding scheme is given. The results are very promising and impressively confirm the unequal error protection capabilities of the presented coding scheme.
