This paper reports on investigations into the performance of a Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) wireless communication system employing a uniform linear array (ULA) at the transmitter and either a uni-form linear array (ULA) or a uniform circular array (UCA) antenna at the receiver. The transmitter is as-sumed to be surrounded by scattering objects while the receiver is postulated to be free from scattering ob-jects. The Laplacian distribution of angle of arrival (AOA) of a signal reaching the receiver is postulated. The performance of bit error rate (BER), capacity and channel estimation for a MIMO system are evaluated for the two cases that the receiver is equipped with ULA or with UCA antennas.
