In this letter, a simple but effective antenna selection algorithm for orthogonal space-time block codes with a linear complex precoder (OSTBC-LCP) is proposed and compared with two conventional algorithms in temporally and spatially correlated fading channels. The proposed algorithm, which minimizes pairwise error probability (MinPEP) with an error codebook (EC) constructed from the error vector quantization, is shown to provide nearly the same performance of MinPEP based on all possible error vectors, while keeping the complexity close to that of antenna selection algorithm based on maximum power criterion (Maxpower).
