A novel transmit antenna selection technique is proposed, specifically designed to maximise the benefit of partial precoding on narrowband downlink multiuser multiple input multiple output (MU-MIMO) systems employing antenna redundancy. The partial precoding utilises the constructive part of the existing interference between the MIMO sub-channels by applying partial sub-channel orthogonalisation and thus improves the signal-to-noise ratio at the receiver. In addition, a customised antenna selection criterion is employed at the transmitter, that maximises the constructive interference among the active antennas and optimises the benefits of partial precoding.
