In practice, incorrectly received data is stored at receiver side rather than discard . when second time data received then the erroneously received previous data and this newly received data is combined to get correct data. This is called HQRQ with soft combining.

There are two main soft combining method are defined.
1. Chase combining=>
Every retransmission contains the same information (data and parity bits).
The receiver uses maximum-ratio combining to combine the received bits with the same bits
from previous transmissions.

  1. Incremental redundancy.
    Every retransmission contains different information than the previous one.
    Multiple sets of coded bits are generated, each representing the same set of information bits.
    The retransmission typically uses a different set of coded bits than the previous transmission,
    with different redundancy versions generated by puncturing the encoder output.
    Thus, at every retransmission the receiver gains extra information.

why QPSK modulation scheme is used for all control channels in LTE ?

EnodeB considers CQI feedback from the UE before creating the transport block.
As per my understanding PUCCH resource allocation is not very dynamic. In this case how UE decide to use a specific MCS (Modulation and Coding Scheme) while using PUCCH channel ?
