The spatio-temporal array-receiver (STAR) decomposes generic wideband CDMA channel responses across various parameter dimensions (e.g., time-delays, multipath components, etc...) and extracts the associated time-varying parameters (i.e., analysis) before reconstructing the channel (i.e., synthesis) with increased accuracy. This work verifies the performance of STAR by comparing the results achieved with generic and measured channels for an average multipath power profile of [0, -4, -8] dB and a vehicular speed below 30 Km/h. The results suggest that losses due to operations with real 5 MHz channels are only 1 dB in SNR and 20-30% in capacity with DBPSK and single transmit and receive antennas. The corresponding SNR threshold for operation with real channels is about 5 dB.
