This paper proposes a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) eigenmode transmission technique which transmits different data streams on eigenmodes of different multi-path components while suppressing intra and inter-eigenmode interferences by means of a turbo equalization technique. This paper also evaluates the effectiveness of the proposed system in frequency selective fading conditions. Computer simulation results confirms the proposed technique is effective even in high spatial correlation cases.
