We focus on a sounding signal design for single-input single-output orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (SISO-OFDM) systems. We show that the frequency spectrum of an optimum sounding signal has a constant magnitude across the frequency band for the cases with or without Doppler effects. Simulation results show that the designed optimum sounding signal outperforms random sounding signals and that the performance of a maximal-length shift register sequence is indistinguishable from that of the optimum sounding signal.
