We consider noisy data transmission channels with unknown scaling and varying offset mismatch. Minimum Pearson distance detection is used in cooperation with a difference operator, which offers immunity to such mismatch. Pair-constrained codes are proposed for unambiguous decoding, where in each codeword certain adjacent symbol pairs must appear at least once. We investigate the cardinality and redundancy of these codes.
