In this letter, we study the impact of feedback error on transmit beamforming systems with finite rate feedback. The feedback channel is modeled as a uniform symmetric channel. The outage probability, bit error rate (BER), diversity gain, and array gain formulas are given. Both analytical and simulation results show that feedback error with small probability will make the system behave badly at high signal-to-noise ratios (SNR).
