A brief discussion of basic encoding and decoding on noisy channels is presented to provide a background for the experimental portion of this research. A partitioned 3 state Gilbert model is used to model a burst channel and a method of calculating error sequence probabilities using this model is introduced. Error sequence probability calculations are made using a 7.3 maximal length code and a 15,7 BCH code. Observations are made about the general type of decoding rule to use to give the lowest probability of decoding error on burst channels when using an interleaving technique.
