Single cell reuse of the same frequency, which is possible in DS-CDMA cellular systems, yields the option of site diversity to increase link capacity. In this letter, a generalized case of site diversity transmission is considered where multiple base stations (BS's) are involved in weighted transmissions with constant total transmit power to a target mobile station (MS). A general equation of conditional bit error rate (BER) is derived based on the model of weighted transmissions combined with antenna diversity reception and rake combining. It turns out theoretically that the optimum set of weights to maximize forward link capacity makes site selection diversity transmission (SSDT) the best performer. This theoretical analysis is confirmed by performance evaluation based on the Monte-Carlo simulation.
