When the distance between the transmitter and the receiver of a wireless communication link is sufficiently short, circuit energy consumption and transmission energy consumption become comparable, and substantial energy savings can be achieved by making use of a transmission scheme which takes into account total energy consumption instead of transmission energy alone. In this paper, the authors consider a trellis coded system operating on a Nakagamim fading channel, and investigate the manner in which the trade-off between transmission energy and circuit energy consumption is a effected by the value of the fading parameter m.
