We propose and evaluate the performance of the time reversal technique in impulse radio ultrawideband (UWB) communications. The evaluation was based on measured channel impulse responses of a 4times1 multiple input single output (MISO) system in the UWB frequency bandwidth of 3 to 5 GHz with both vertical and horizontal polarization at the receiver. The results show that there is a great potential in combining time reversal and UWB technique with respect to both reducing the receiver complexity and improving the system performance. Simultaneous communication is illustrated with 5 users, each with a bit error rate (BER) of less than 10-3 at an average signal to noise ratio (SNR) of 15 dB
