Phase Shift Keying (PSK) is a digital modulation technique in which the phase of the carrier signal is varied in accordance with the incoming message signal to modulate it. It is a modulation scheme of great importance for mobile communications due to its high power efficiency and moderate Bit Error Rates (BER). Therefore it is apt to analyze its performance on different radio channels which portray different aspects of a real time channel, in order to understand the practical implications of real time processes. This paper comprises of a performance analysis of BPSK and 8PSK on the various radio channels. These two modulation schemes will be simulated along with the different radio channels. Each modulation scheme will be run with each channel simulation to determine the effect of the channels on the modulation. A comparative study on the effect of the channels on each types of PSK is presented.
