Closed-loop, rate-one, channel orthogonalized space-time block codes (CO-STBCs) for three and four transmit antennas using a single (real) phase feedback term have been proposed . These codes achieve full diversity and result in maximum likelihood (ML) decoding with only linear processing at the receiver similar to OSTBCs. In this paper, we propose a closed-loop STBC for five and six transmit antennas with rate 3/4, where the one parameter feedback angle can be evaluated in closed form. These codes achieve full diversity and are delay optimal. Simulation results comparing the error-rate performance of the CO-STBC with open-loop OSTBC as well as some quasiorthogonal space-time block codes are also provided. While the 1- to 5-dB gain accrued by the closed-loop scheme (over the open-loop methods) is not surprising, the novel contribution of this work is in the approach taken to derive the feedback parameter as a single phase term, which is purely a function of the channel gains.
