In this paper, we analyze a QPSK MODEM over underwater acoustic channel model. Ambient noises and parameters of underwater environments debase the BER performance of an underwater modem. In the paper, the BER performance of uncoded QPSK and rate-2/3 convolutional coded QPSK is analyzed. And To improve BER Performance, we apply a channel equalization technique to the underwater modem.
