This paper considers the design of iterative receivers for space-frequency block-coded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (SFBC-OFDM) systems in unknown wireless dispersive fading channel with outer channel coding. The iterative joint channel estimation and symbol detection algorithm is derived. A simple decision-error judgment criterion is proposed and an improved training scheme is applied in the system to suppress the error propagation. Both theoretical analysis and computer simulation show that this algorithm gives better BER performance and saves the overhead of OFDM systems.
