For a FH/BFSK system, a new type of combiner termed the product combining receiver (PCR) is investigated. The performance of the PCR is evaluated for the cases of on/off partial band noise with optimum jamming fraction, and worst case partial band tone jamming. The performance of PCR is shown to be comparable to that of the clipper receiver. The effect of diversity combining along with convolutional coding and ratio threshold technique is also analyzed. Whereas the clipper requires the knowledge of signal-to-noise ratio for threshold adjustments, the PCR does not require this knowledge for its operation.
