A new fading reduction technique applicable to small shipborne antennas in the future maritime satellite communications is proposed. This technique has simple hardware construction and a good fading reduction effect. In this paper, the principle of the proposed fading reduction technique and the theoretical reduction effects of the technique are presented, comparing with those of the Polarization Shaping Method.
