Abstract--A discrete fading channel (DFC) consisting of a
binary modulated time-correlated Rayleigh fading channel used
in conjunction with coherent soft-decision demodulation of res-
olution q is considered. The capacity of the binary input 2q
-ary
output DFC, which can be explicitly expressed in terms of a
non-binary noise discrete channel with stationary ergodic 2q
-ary
noise, is evaluated in terms of q and the fading parameters. It
is observed that considerable capacity gains can be achieved due
to the channel's statistical memory and the use of as few as
2 bits for soft-decision over interleaving the channel (to render
it memoryless) and hard-decision demodulation (q = 1). The
