In this letter we apply the general orthogonal space-time block codes (OSTBC) to MIMO-OFDM systems over frequency-selective fading channels and aim to exploit the potential multipath diversity. By replacing the scalar entry of an OSTBC matrix with the vector of repeated symbols, we obtain a new OSTBC which can achieve both spatial diversity and multipath diversity. Moreover, a fast maximum likelihood (ML) decoding is admitted. Simulation results show that the proposed OSTBC, for two transmit antennas, can obtain a higher diversity gain than the Alamouti code at the same ML decoding complexity
