In this paper, we propose an adaptive RAKE receiver, which does not need to send the sounding signals and can track the fluctuations caused by fading. The channel estimation can be done by using a least squares method of the first and second equations suppressing additive noise and tracking the channel fluctuations. It is confirmed by computer simulations that the result has good agreement with theory and the performance is almost same as that of the conventional RAKE with the sounding signals.
