We propose a novel semi-blind tensor-based MIMO channel estimation scheme that employs orthogonal space-time block codes and per-antenna power loading at the transmitter. Our scheme eliminates the unknown transmit codewords and constructs a tensor model that contains the channel coefficients by performing post-processing at the receiver. Then, the channel… CONTINUE READING
