High-frequency (HF) communications is undergoing a resurgence despite advances in long-range satellite communication systems. Defense agencies are using the HF spectrum for backup communications as well as for spectrum surveillance applications. Spectrum management organizations are monitoring the HF spectrum to control and enforce licensing. These activities usually require systems capable of determining the location of a source of transmissions, separating valid signals from interference and noise, and recognizing signal modulation. Our ultimate aim is to develop robust modulation recognition algorithms for real HF signals that propagate by multiple ionospheric modes. One aspect of modulation recognition is the extraction of signal identifying features. The most common features for modulation recognition are instantaneous phase, amplitude, and frequency. Many papers present results based on synthetic data and unproven assumptions. However, this paper continues our previous work by applying the coherence function to noisy real HF groundwave signals; which removes the need for synthesized data and unrealistic assumptions.
