The effects of hybrid concatenated space-time (HC-ST) codes applying iterative a posteriori probability (APP) decoding are investigated. The bit error rate (BER) and frame error rate (FER) performance of the iterative decoded hybrid Tarokh, Seshadri, Calderbank space-time (TSC ST) coded system under flat Rayleigh fading is analyzed. At the FER 10-2 level the results show that the serially concatenated space-time (SC-ST) codes provide a coding gain of 3 dB compared to the TSC ST codes, where an additional coding gain of 1 dB beyond the SC-ST code performance can be obtained applying the HC-ST coding topology.
