In this letter, we propose the SNR estimator for multipath fading channels. We employ the least squares estimator for estimating the channel and estimate the SNR using the estimated noise variance. The SNR estimation can be used to adapt the demodulation algorithm to enhance its performance, as well as to provide the channel quality information. Simulation results show the performance of SNR estimator.
