We consider a new concept of a multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) receiver which uses one active receiving antenna and multiple parasitic elements. The parasitic elements give the possibility of creating a directive antenna beam which is rotated 360 degrees around within the duration of a symbol period. The received signal which is accessed at the antenna connector of the active antenna is expanded in frequency bandwidth compared to the transmitted signal. We show that each sub-band of the received signal consists of linearly independent combinations of the transmitted signals, and thus we have obtained a MIMO receiver. We give a few examples on how to implement this receiver and also explain the effects of sampling the wave-field at discrete angular directions.
