In this paper, a type hybrid ARQ scheme with Adaptive Forward Error Correction (ARQ/AFEC) using BCH codes is proposed and analyzed. The basic idea in the proposed type hybrid ARQ/AFEC scheme is to increase the error-correcting capability of BCH code according to channel state using incremental redundancy. The incremental redundancy is the remainder ai(x) of an information frame f(x) of length n divided by a minimum polynomial mi(x) of α2i-1, where α is a primitive element of finite field GF(2l). Let gi(x) be the product of mj(x) (j=1, 2, , i) and let ci(x) be the remainder of f(x) divided by gi(x). The polynomial ci(x) is obtained from the remainders ai(x) and ci-1(x) since mi(x)and gi-1 (x) are relatively prime. Since f(x) + ci(x) is divided by gi(x), f(x) + ci(x) is the codeword of an i-error-correcting BCH code when n2l-1. So, the errors less than or equal to i bits in f(x) can be corrected if ci(x) has no error.
