The effects on the performance of differentially detected Gaussian minimum shift keying (GMSK) signals operated in the presence of adjacent channel interference (ACI), modulator impairments, amplifier nonlinearities and additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) is investigated. By means of computer simulation, the bit error rate (BER) performance of 1- and 2-bit conventional and decision feedback differentially detected (C-DD and DF-DD) GMSK systems in the presence of static and Rayleigh faded ACI is obtained. It is found that the best performance is achieved by the 2-bit DF-DD receiver and has resulted in BER performance improvements for the static ACI channel and error floor reductions for the Rayleigh faded ACI channel
