Block transmission of multi-scale Orthogonal Wavelet Division Multiplexing (OWDM) is proposed for signaling over wideband Linear Time-Varying channels (LTV). Such channels are best modeled by Multi-Scale, Multi-Lag (MSML) models and the proposed OWDM designs are tailored to such channels. Given this signaling, the effective channel matrix for the received signal is banded, allowing for the modification of prior methods of equalization for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing over narrowband LTV channels. Performance of such equalizers and signaling is provided via simulation and shown to offer good performance coupled with high spectral efficiency over previously proposed designs.
