In this paper, we discuss a semi-blind channel estimation algorithm for rapidly time-varying channels, relying on a complex exponential basis expansion model (CE-BEM) for the channel. However, whereas the original CE-BEM approach models a rectangularly windowed version of the channel, the proposed CE-BEM approach models a smoothly windowed version of the channel. This allows for a much better fit, and leads to better channel estimates. The obtained semi-blind channel estimates are subsequently used to construct a recently developed CE-BEM serial decision-feedback equalizer for CE-BEM channels. Simulation results are carried out to validate the proposed ideas. 1
