Frequency hopping spread spectrum with noncoherent M-ary frequency shift keying system is considered. In this study Reed Solomon codes RS (255, 223) are employed in a standard error correction role to provide some Anti-Jamming (AJ) capability with 8-bit symbols. Noise has been added to RS encoded data, which is demodulated at RS decoder perfectly. Matlab simulations have been implemented for numerical results. Graphical results have been plotted between the probability of an erasure versus ρ using RS (255, 223) code for 1 and 2 kHz frequencies. The simulation results have proved that system having RS (255, 223) code with M = 32 require substantially less signal to jammer power ratio to achieve the same bit error probability.
