Pre-decorrelation is a method of achieving orthogonalization between multiple signals on the forward link. This technique can achieve orthogonalization in a flat fading channel, however, the orthogonality does not clearly appear in a multipath fading channel because of interchip interference. In order to eliminate the effect of multipath and prevent interchip interference, multicarrier modulation can be employed. In this paper we propose a multicarrier pre-decorrelation technique which combines multicarrier modulation with pre-decorrelation. Computer simulation results show that the proposed technique can achieve orthogonalization in a multipath fading channel.
