In order to improve the synchronization performance of the OFDM-based FM broadcasting system, this letter addresses the problem of delay selection when the system uses a cyclic delay diversity (CDD) scheme. By proper selection of the amount of cyclic delay, an improved fine carrier frequency offset estimator is derived. By computer simulation, the proposed estimator is shown to benefit from properly chosen delay parameter and perform robustly.
