Space-time block code (STBC) with complex orthogonal designs achieves full diversity with a simple maximum-likelihood (ML) decoding, however, do not achieve a full transmission rate for more than two antennas. To attain a higher transmission rate, STBC with quasi-orthogonal designs were proposed, whereas there are interference terms caused by relaxing the orthogonality. It has an impact on decoding complexity because a receiver needs to decode two symbols at a time. Moreover, QO-STBC does not achieve full diversity. In this paper, we propose a scheme which makes possible to decode symbols one by one, and two schemes which gain full transmission diversity by upsetting the balance of the transmit power and rotating constellation.
