Abstract (40-Word Limit): We extend a model for nonlinear propagation over lumped-amplified uncompensated links to setups using Raman amplification. We compare theoretical to simulative results for PM-16QAM Nyquist-WDM on PSCF links, showing an excellent agreement. We also show that Raman NLI enhancement gives limited practical impairments in realistic setups
