A novel scheme for spatially multiplexing two BPSK signals using a 3-element ESPAR (electronically steerable parasitic array radiator) antenna was reported in. In this paper we first optimize the set of loads controlling the parasitic elements within the transmission mode by maximizing the outage capacity. We also propose different reception techniques for spatially demultiplexing real and complex signals (using the same set of loads). The proposed transmission and reception schemes are evaluated in an indoor peer-to-peer mobile ad-hoc channel via simulations, where each ad-hoc node is equipped with a 3-element ESPAR terminal.
