PBER: Abbreviation for pseudo bit-error ratio. In adaptive high-frequency (HF) radio, a bit error ratio derived by a majority decoder that processes redundant transmissions.

Note: In adaptive HF radio automatic link establishment, PBER is determined by the extent of error correction, such as by using the fraction of non-unanimous votes in the 2-of-3 majority decoder.
