An improved iterative minimum mean-squared error (MMSE) channel estimation method is proposed for joint coding and precoding OFDM systems. Compared with the traditional simplified estimator, the proposed scheme provides higher estimation quality with slight complexity increment at low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) values. The performance of the iterative receiver including the proposed estimator approaches that of the perfect MMSE estimator without any simplification.
