Skywave ionospheric communication systems offer a good choice to satellite communications when transmitting from the poles. For the last 10 years the authors have been sounding and testing modulations through a 12 700 km high frequency link from the Spanish Antarctic Station to Spain. Previous tests comparing direct sequence spread spectrum (DS-SS) and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) showed that spread spectrum bit rate error (BER) results outperformed OFDM at the expense of lower bit rates. In this study the authors present three spread spectrum techniques for this long haul link that increase the bit rate and the spectral efficiency of the direct sequence while keeping the good BER performance obtained. Tests have been performed with several symbol periods as well as different bandwidth for each technique, hence the authors can conclude which combination best suits this channel.
