This letter introduces a modified multiband orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MB-OFDM) signal with low peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR). From the presented results, we can see that the modified MB-OFDM signal can be implemented with low PAPR. When MB-OFDM signals is equipped with a partial transmit sequence (PTS) approach, the PAPR of the modified MB-OFDM signals using two partial transmit sequences is almost the same to that of the ordinary MB-OFDM signals using four partial transmit sequences.
