Various very high frequency (VHF) transmitter-receiver combinations were used with minimum shift key (MSK) modems for bit error rate tests at 2400 and 4800 bit/second (b/s) rates and at various radiofrequency (RF) noise density levels over a simulated RF digital data link. Results indicated that to obtain the same bit error rate performance, the energy to noise (E/No) requirements differed up to 3.5 dB at 2400 b/s and up to 6 dB at 4800 b/s for the various transmitter-receiver combinations in the ground/air channel.
