Abstract—A frequency-hopping (FH) space-frequency (SF)-coded clustered orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) system is considered. It is shown that SF coding reduces the number of collisions in OFDMA with FH provided that the subcarrier clusters are formed randomly at each hopping instant. Analytical expressions for the collision rate, which is defined as the expected number of collisions per symbol, are derived. Bit error rate (BER) computations via simulations in a frequency-selective fading channel corroborate the theoretical findings for SF-coded FH-OFDMA.
