A novel channel diversity concept is proposed and demonstrated, which avoids receiving signal deterioration due to multipath fading in mobile receivers. The system is based on coherent superposition of the signals received from several transmitters supplying the same information at different frequencies. Based on a software radio architecture this concept may increase the quality of mobile reception in modern car receivers considerably. Compared with multiantenna-receivers which overcome the multipath fading problem by simultaneously receiving the same program with several antennas, the proposed solution is advantageous, since it requires only a single antenna.
