Diversity is one of the methods to overcome the multipath effect in the mobile environment. A pattern diversity antenna with four beams was used to investigate the diversity performance in the onbody environment. A switched diversity combining method-switch-and-stay strategy-was used to analyze the data. Finding an angle of arrival (AoA) of different multipath components is very useful since it allows optimization of the base-station antenna radiation patterns and can be used to locate and… CONTINUE READING
