A novel serially concatenated coding scheme for use with minimum shift keying (MSK) is proposed. The novelty is to use a mixture of recursive and non-recursive realisations for the MSK modulator. It is shown that this improves the performance of iterative demodulation and decoding of convolutionally encoded MSK signals with a slight decrease in the decoder complexity.
