Providing results of a series of link-level simulations for a class of spatial and temporal equalizer (S/T-equalizer) is the primary objective of this letter, which is supplemental to this letter's companion article. The S/T-equalizers discussed in this letter have a configuration that can be expressed as the cascaded connection of adaptive array antenna and maximum likelihood sequence estimator (MLSE): each of the adaptive array antenna elements has a fractionally spaced tapped delay line (FTDL), and the MLSE has taps covering a portion of the channel delay profile. Both the desired and interference signals suffer from severe inter-symbol interference (ISI). A major difference of this article from its companion letter is that account is taken of the presence of co-channel interference (CCI). Bit error rate (BER) performance of the S/T-equalizer is presented as a result of the link-level simulations that use field measurement data.
