We propose two novel blind LMS algorithms, called exponential step size LMS algorithms (ES-LMS), for adaptive array antennas with fast convergence speeds. Both of the proposed algorithms are much better at tracking signal sources than the conventional LMS algorithms. In addition, they require neither spatial knowledge nor reference signals since they use the finite symbol property of digital signal. Computer simulations verify performances of the two proposed algorithms.
