We introduce an abstract model for studying MFSK jammers. We conclude that Houston's partial-band tone jammers are optimal among all energy-restricted jamming threats vs. orthodox MFSK, but that if the communicator uses random amplitude modulation as a countermeasure, a gain of 3dB vs. optimal jamming (which is no longer tone jamming) is achievable.
