In the cellular mobile communication systems, co-channel interference and Rayleigh fading degrade the transmission performance. Adaptive Array Antenna (AAA) can suppress interference and, at the same time, can cope with multi-path fading by using a wide antenna spacing resulting in low correlation of received signals in each antenna element. A feedback-type AAA was proposed for frequency division duplexed (FDD) systems, where mobile station measures channel characteristics and feed-backs them to the base station. In this paper, we extend the system by introducing 2-branch diversity reception at a mobile station, and study the influence of antenna element spacing at the base station and control delay time on bit error rate performance under a realistic propagation model.
