In this letter, a novel general design method of quasi-orthogonal space-time block codes for four antennae is presented. Comparison with the design method proposed by Jafarkhani, this method enlarges the number of quasi-orthogonal space-time block codes. The performance of these codes is also analyzed and the simulation results show that it is similar to even better than that of the codes proposed by Jafarkhani.
