Thanks for your input Zach. Unfortunately, it is mostly irrelevant to the question. You are the first person in this conversation to mention BPSK.
I clearly stated that GMSK is a form of staggered QPSK with an unusual shaping filter. Accompanied with Viterbi decoding picking out the most likely path through the phase transitions of +/- 90 degrees at every baud time it has essentially the same performance as QPSK. I've taught digital communications at Virginia Tech at the undergraduate and graduate level and had graduate students doing digital communications research for over a decade. But thank you for your lecture.
Thanks for clearing that up, Bob.
Your learned, considerate response is exactly what I've come to expect from academia.
