Title: Method for determining signal quality of simultaneously received multiple channels of data

Abstract: A spread spectrum communication station simultaneously receives multiple data channels on the same frequency spectrum and at data rates which may individually vary. A determination is made of signal quality based on signal to noise ratio (SNR) the channels by comparing a forward error corrected sample with a corresponding delayed sample. The comparison of the delayed despread data with the decoded data provides the indication of SNR.
