In this letter, we introduce new parameters for classifying digitally modulated unknown QAM and PSK signals. Our two parameters for the classification are the variance of magnitude ratios and the mean of mod 2π phase differences. The gain adjustments of amplitudes are not required for the classification. Five different types of QAM constellations and three different types of PSK constellations are tested and the characteristics of our classification parameters are investigated in various SNR environments. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed technique.
