Coded space-time soft cancellation minimum mean squared error filtering (CST SC-MMSE) based turbo equalization, which exploits transmit diversity and coding gains through two turbo iteration loops, horizontal and vertical iterations, has been introduced for uplink single carrier signaling. In this paper, performance of the CST SC-MMSE equalizer is evaluated in realistic scenarios using multi-dimensional channel measurement data. Measurement data consists of snapshots measured in different channel conditions in terms of spatial and temporal properties. It is shown that the CST SC-MMSE equalizer can achieve excellent performance even at the lower SNR range due to the vertical iterations between the decoders that can achieve a coding gain on top of the diversity gain. However, performance depends on channel conditions. The impact of the horizontal and vertical iterations is studied in different channel conditions.
