In wireless communication fading of channels is the serious cause of the received degraded signals. The effect of fading can be minimized by using various time and space domain techniques. However, space domain techniques are preferred over the others due to its advantages. In this paper, comparison of the wireless MIMO system under Almouti’s and maximum ratio combining schemes is presented. Basic idea in these schemes is to transmit and receive more than one copy of the original signals. Using two transmitter antennas and one receiver antenna, the scheme provides the nearly same diversity order as the maximal-ratio receiver combining (MRRC) with one transmitter antenna, and two receiver antennas. Results for one transmitter and four receivers under MRRC is also presented and compared. Finally, results are presented while varying the average transmitted power.
