Channel equalization and identification appear as key issues in improving wireless communications. It is known that the linearization of the GMSK modulation leads to a continuous phase OQPSK which can be considered as a Minimum SHift Keying (MSK) modulation. Thus methods of equalization and identification when the channel is input by MSK modulated signals is worth to look at. Most algorithms consider MSK signals as two independent white binary PAM staggered signals; this is not the case in our approach. Here, MSK signals are seen, after sampling at baud rate, as colored complex discrete signals. Even if this view of MSK modulation is quite simple, it has never been utilized with purpose of blind equalization. The particular statistics of such signals are studied, yielding an original closed-form analytical solution to blind equalization, both in the monovariate case and in the source separation problem. Simulations show a good behavior of the algorithms in terms of bit error rate as a function of SNR, both in the case of blind equalization and source separation.
