Abstract --- This paper examines the gains that
can be obtained when maximum a posteriori
(MAP) decoding is used to recover correlated
and/or non­equiprobable data that has been
channel encoded prior to transmission over very
noisy AWGN and Rayleigh fading channels.
Most compression algorithms leave some resid­
ual redundancy in the output bit stream; this
redundancy -- in the form of memory and/or a
non­uniform distribution -- may be exploited at
the receiver by adjusting the decoding metric.
This approach is demonstrated with a variety
