Results of a study into the performance of slow frequency hopping M-ary differential phase shift keying (MDPSK) signaling in the presence of both tone jamming and Gaussian noise are presented. Previous work has been extended by considering larger signal sets and skewed differential phases with unequal decision regions. Probability distributions are used instead of calculating a set of probabilities over symmetrical decision regions. This allows the optimization of the decision regions in tone jamming from the equal regions used in Gaussian noise environments. The error performance when a frequency offsets exists between the jamming tone and MDPSK carrier is also considered
