In this letter, a new method for sidelobe suppression in non-contiguous orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (NC-OFDM) systems is proposed. Unlike the conventional approach, sidelobes are suppressed by iteratively adjusting the constellation points for the subcarriers that are close to the edges of the used bandwidth. The constellation points corresponding to the maximum sidelobe suppression are chosen for transmission. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm yields good performance improvement in terms of sidelobe suppression, and does not have a significant impact on the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR).
