Summary: 
The paper proposes a transmitter diversity scheme with a desired signal selection for the mobile communication systems in which the severe cochannel interference (CCI) is assumed to occur at the base station. The feature of the proposed scheme is that the criterion of the downlink branch selection is based on the desired signal power estimated by the correlation between the received signal and the unique word at the matched filter. Moreover, the unique word length control method according to the instantaneous SIR is applied to the proposed scheme, taking account of the uplink transmission efficiency. Computer simulation results show that the proposed scheme provides the better performance than the conventional transmitter diversity in the severe CCI environments, and that the unique word length control method applied to the proposed scheme decreases the unique word length without the degradation of the transmission quality, comparing with the fixed unique word length method.
