Abstract

The paper describes the behaviour of narrowband phase-locked loops in the mobile multipath environment. It is shown that the loop will often track individual frequency components of the pilot's spectrum and that the loop can give rise to frequency-tracking errors in estimating the nominal frequency of the received pilot
