Recently proposed full-rate quasi-orthogonal space-time block codes (QSTBCs) with power scaling is able to achieve full-diversity through linearly combining two adequately power scaled orthogonal space-time block codes (OSTBCs). While in our initial work we numerically derived the optimal value of the power scaling factor to achieve full-diversity, our goal in this letter is to analytically derive the optimal power scaling, especially for square lattice constellations (e.g., 4-QAM, 16-QAM, etc.) by maximizing the coding gain.
