Oversampled filter banks (OSFB) can be applied as channel coding and have shown benefits in correlated and impulsive noise. Therefore, in this paper, we consider such channel coders for a power line communications scenario, where such conditions create a hostile channel environment. The proposed channel coder assumes the knowledge of the noise covariance matrix. The transmission is accomplished over the N weakest eigenmodes of the noise, which are identified by means of a broadband eigenvalue decomposition. We demonstrate by simulations that this approach can lead to an enhancement of the SNR in the receiver and to improved performance over standard channel coding approaches.
