A noncoherent channel model is considered where neither transmitter nor receiver are cognizant of the fading's realization, but both are aware of its statistic. The focus is on capacity at high signal-to-noise ratios (SNR). In particular, the capacity pre-loglog-defined as the limiting ratio of the capacity to loglog(SNR) as SNR tends to infinity-is studied.
