Two systems for communication through multipath channels are presented and compared here. They are based on coding with binary sequences. The first one uses a pseudo-orthogonal coset code [1] and the second one the Yates-Holgate sequences [8,5]. Both are briefly described and their communication properties are recalled. An underwater experiment has been conducted with these codes. The obtained performances are given in terms of error and transmission rates. Two reception schemes are compared.
