This paper considers the use of SC modulations (Single-Carrier) with FDE (Frequency-Domain Equalization) with low-complexity soft combining ARQ schemes (Automatic Repeat reQuest). With our technique, packets associated to different transmission attempts are combined in a soft way, allowing improved performances. Its low complexity makes it particularly interesting for the uplink of wireless systems. This paper proposes an accurate analytical model for a TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) scheme where packet combining ARQ is applied. It evaluates the uplink non-saturated packet delay and goodput for a generic message arrival process. Our analytical results are validated using physical and MAC layer simulations.
