Why the Qam modulation cannot work well in ofdm benchmark example?

Hi guys,

Recently, I have conducted a project based on ofdm benchmark. However,
when
I use the high modulation rate like qam16 and qam64, the packet error
rate
increase significantly. I guess the reason is that the preamble in
gunradio
is too weak to do channel estimation, thereby raising the packet error
rate.

Furthermore, even though I test the example offline without going
through
the channel, the packet error rate still very high, which make me feel
confused. It is supposed to perform normally offline, without any
decoding
error right?

Best,
Kay

In order to do QAM over OFDM, you will need a good equalizer; we
currently don’t have good ones implemented.

Thanks for the clarification. I’ve been grappling with the high packet
error rates for a while now. :slight_smile:
