Uninformed jammers are used to facilitate covert communications between a transmitter and an intended receiver under the surveillance of a warden. In reality, the signals the uniformed jammer emits to make the warden’s decision uncertain have inadvertently interfered with the detection of the intended receiver. In this paper, we apply truncated channel inversion power control (TCIPC) to both the transmitter and the uninformed jammer. The TCIPC scheme used on the uninformed jammer may help the intended receiver remove jamming signals using the successive interference cancellation (SIC) technique. Under the assumption that the warden knows the channel coefficient between two intended transceivers and achieves the optimal detection power threshold, we form the optimization problem to maximize the effective transmission rate (ETR) under covertness and decoding constraints. With the aim of enhancing covertness-related performance, we achieve the optimal power control parameters and determine system parameter-related constraints required for the existence of these solutions. According to the simulations, the use of the TCIPC scheme on the uninformed jammer significantly improves covertness-related performance in comparison to that of random power control (RPC) and constant power control (CPC) schemes. In addition, simulation results show that, for the TCIPC scheme: 1) the maximum ETR tends to converge as the transmitter’s or the uninformed jammer’s maximum transmit power increases, and 2) there exists an optimal value of the transmitter’s predetermined transmission rate to achieve the optimal performance.
