Nonlinear OQPSK-type (Offset Quadrature Phase
Shift Keying) modulations can be designed to have almost
constant envelope, making it suitable for systems requiring
highly-efficient and low-cost grossly nonlinear power amplifiers.
In this paper we consider the use of pseudo-random spreading
sequences for channel estimation purposes in systems employing
nonlinear OQPSK-type modulations. We consider Maximum-
Length sequences, Kasami sequences, Gold sequences and Tomlinson,
Cercas, Hughes sequences, all known to have good autocorrelation
properties, making them appropriate for channel
estimation purposes. The cross-correlation between different
OQPSK components that constitute nonlinear OQPSK-type signals
is obtained and its impact on the channel estimation
performance is evaluated. It is shown that Tomlinson, Cercas,
Hughes sequences outperform the other sequences in the channel
