In several practical settings we wish to communicate an identier based on ash- ing lights. The communication channels here use small alphabets, are error prone, unsynchronized, and require short code words. Nevertheless the number of identiers is relatively large. We model this situation as a cyclic shift channel where the shift length equals the code wordlength. We study the behaviour of the capacity of this channel and dene a class of self synchronized error correcting codes.
