In this paper, we evaluate BER (bit error rate) performance and diversity gain when employing a transmission technique utilizing LC (Linear Combination) diversity using 2 time slots with QPSK channels in 2 2 MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) spatial multiplexing systems by comparing it with the upper and lower bound on BER. This evaluation shows that this transmission technique realizes high diversity gain and high transmission rate in LOS (line-of-sight) and NLOS (non line-of-sight) environments.
