In this paper, we propose an LDPC-coded OFDMA system with a resource allocation method suitable for the uplink of mobile cellular environments. At the receiver of the proposed system, an iterative channel estimation and decoding (IED) method with a Wiener filter adapting to the channel variation rate is employed to support high mobility without boosting the pilot power. For practical applications, the channel variation rate is also estimated with pilot symbols to select Wiener filter coefficients for every received packet dynamically allocated. It is shown that the proposed system supports the mobility up to 250 km/h and exhibits more than 1 dB performance gain over the system with conventional non-iterative receiver.
