In this letter, a novel channel estimation method is proposed for frequency-domain equalization of OFDM systems in fast fading multipath channels. It is shown by computer simulations that the proposed method can not only estimate the channel impulse response (CIR) accurately but also achieve lower BER than conventional method at low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).
