In this paper, the wavelet channel coding (WCC) is revisited in a more general analysis embracing flat real wavelet matrices derived from a Haar matrix and complex input symbols. WCC encoding and decoding are algebraically described and a probability distribution of wavelet symbols is formulated. Signal constellations for transmission of wavelet symbols are proposed and the constellation average energy is deduced from probability generating functions of the wavelet symbols. System performance over a flat Rayleigh channel is analyzed and compared with symbol-by-symbol detecting systems and diversity two space-time block coding (STBC) systems. Simulation results show that WCC presents better performance than ordinary symbol-by-symbol detecting systems, particularly at higher signal-to-noise ratios for higher spectral efficiencies, and STBC systems for spectral efficiency of 1 bit/s/Hz.
