Comparisons with Other Techniques -

There are several articles which compare MSK and other modulation techniques, with special emphasis on useable signal-to-noise ratios and required bandwidth. The canonical paper is by John Oetting \OET79}, who compares ALL known modes, and provides a bonus of a extensive bibliography on all of the techniques. Feher and his group have looked at the problem of use on satellites in \LEN82}. A few other pertinent comparisons are included here.

Filtering -

The utility of MSK has been shown to improve with adequate pre-filtering of the input signal. Morais and Feher \MOR80} give an excellent overview of the effects of filtering and limiting. \BAY79} and \RAB78} discuss bandwidth shaping, and \MUR811 and \SUZ81 } explore the use of Gaussian filtering.
