In this letter, we propose an efficient relay antenna selection algorithm for the amplify and forward (AF) two-way multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) relay systems with analogue network coding (ANC). The proposed algorithm greedily selects the additional receive-transmit antenna pair that provides the maximum sum-rate. An iterative computation method is also designed to evaluate the sum-rate efficiently.
