We propose a DOA-Matrix based blind CFO estimation method for a MIMO-OFDM system with Virtual Carriers. The method estimates CFO in closed-form by jointly exploiting the shift-invariant structure of time-domain signal received on multiple receive antennas. In contrast to previous training-based methods, the proposed method is bandwidth efficiency. We also present numerical simulation results for different transmit and receive antenna configurations and for different record lengths.
