Non-binary low rate convolutional codes with almost optimum weight spectrum
We propose a construction of convolutional codes over the alphabet of size 2k with code rate of one bit per symbol and constraint length 3k, k =2,3,.... These codes have the least possible values of several first elements of the weight spectrum for large values of k.
