When fractional samples are available at the receiver, blind channel estimation methods can be developed exploiting the cyclostationary nature of the received signal. In this paper, we show that different solutions are possible if cyclostationarity is introduced at the transmitter instead of the receiver. We propose specific coding and interleaving strategies at the transmitter which induce cyclostationarity and facilitate the equalization task. Novel subspace equalization algorithms are derived which make no assumptions whatsoever on the channel zeros locations. Synchronization issues are briefly discussed and some simulation examples are presented.
