We introduce a new method to enhance the tolerability of the pilot based impulse noise canceller presented in J. Rinne et al. (2002) in time and frequency selective environments. The method uses a quantized value of the carrier deviations caused by the presence of the impulsive interference to weight the soft bits in the digital terrestrial receiver. Hence more reliability against the impulse burst is achieved. The performance of the new method is compared to conventional receiver structures in… CONTINUE READING
