In this paper, we propose a full rate space-time block code selection technique, which achieves full diversity when more than two transmit antennas are used for transmission. Only one or few feedback bits are needed at the transmitter, representing relative state information of the channels. Moreover, the proposed scheme allows separate decoding of transmitted symbols at the receiver. It is shown by computer simulations that, the new approach provides SNR improvement, especially when feedback errors occur, compared to the transmit antenna selection technique associated with Alamouti's scheme, for the same number of feedback bits
