In this paper, we propose an OFDM scheme with pre-IDFT/DFT and the frequency domain equalization on frequency-selective Rayleigh fading channels. In this scheme, a two-dimensional block interleaving is used to randomize the correlated noise caused by the frequency domain linear equalizer. Then, the pre-DFT averages the interleaved noise enhancement and improves the error performance of the proposed scheme. Computer simulations confirm the bit error probability of the proposed scheme for multilevel modulations.
