We design a DAB system using space-time coding for reliable transmission in the multipath fading channel. This letter assess the performance evaluation of space-time coded DAB system. For channel estimation in the space-time coded DAB system, we introduce two training sequences and derive the mean square error of each training sequence. We then represent the average symbol error rate of the space-time coded DAB system for the specific cases of two, three, four transmit antennas.
