We propose a modified orthogonal transmit diversity (OTD) scheme, which can simultaneously achieve full path diversity and temporal diversity by using symbol splitting. Our proposed method is comparable to space-time spreading (STS) in performance and superior to STS in the cost and efficiency of base station RF devices.
