In this paper we present a multiple access scheme for the up-link of broadband wireless systems. We consider SC-based (Single Carrier) block transmission, with all users transmitting continuously, regardless of their data-rate. The transmitted signals can have very low envelope fluctuations. Moreover, the different users remain orthogonal, even for severe time-dispersive channels. By employing IB-DFE techniques (Iterative Block Decision Feedback Equalization) we can have detection performances close to the matched filter bound, and even for fully loaded systems and severe time-dispersive channels.
