Providing short-message communication and simultaneous channel estimation for sporadic and fast fading scenarios is a challenge for future wireless networks. In this work we propose a novel blind communication and deconvolution scheme by using Huffman sequences, which allows to solve three important tasks at once: (i) determination of the transmit power (ii) identification of the instantaneous discrete-time FIR channel if the channel delay is less than L/2 and (iii) simultaneously communicating L-1 bits of information. Our signal reconstruction uses a recent semi-definite program that can recover two unknown signals from their auto-correlations and cross-correlations. This convex algorithm shows numerical stability and operates fully deterministic without any further channel assumptions.
