The use of multiple antennas in combination with advanced detection techniques, such as turbo equalization is an effective means for a Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) system to provide high quality and high data rate services. Alamouti's space-time block code (STBC) with two transmit antennas and one or two receive antennas over frequency selective FWA SUI-3 channels is considered in this paper. We propose a turbo equalization algorithm that aims at exploiting the multipath diversity and reducing the effect of intersymbol interference (ISI), and in the meantime, keeping the desired feature of the original Alamouti detection algorithm, i.e, achieving spatial diversity with simple linear processing.
