In this letter, we introduce frequency-domain space-time transmit diversity (STTD) encoding/decoding to orthogonal frequency division multiplexing combined with time division multiplexing (OFDM/TDM) on a frame-by-frame basis (i.e., over several concatenated OFDM signals in the frequency-domain) to achieve both spatial and frequency diversity gains and improve the bit error rate (BER) performance. The theoretical BER performance is evaluated by numerical computation using the derived conditional BER and confirmed by computer simulation.
