This paper examines a coded Gaussian Minimum Shift Keying (GMSK) system which uses Reed-Solomon (RS) codes both in Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) channels and Rayleigh fading channels. The performance of GMSK and RS code combinations is compared with the constraint that the transmitted signal bandwidth is constant. The coding gains were obtained using simulations and the best combination of GMSK and RS codes was found. The optimal code rates over AWGN and Rayleigh fading channels were also compared.
