In this paper a novel multicarrier modulation system called Complex Wavelet Packet Modulation (CWPM) has been proposed. It is based on using the Complex Wavelet Transform (CWT) together with the Wavelet Packet Modulation (WPM). The proposed system has been tested for communication over flat and frequency selective Rayleigh fading channels and its performance has been compared with some other multicarrier systems. The simulation results show that the performance of the proposed CWPM system has the best performance in all types of channel considered as compared with OFDM, Slantlet based OFDM, FRAT based OFDM and WPM systems. Furthermore, the proposed scheme has less PAPR as compared with the traditional WPM multicarrier system.
