Cooperative networking schemes provide spatial diversity gain (named cooperative diversity gain) using the antennas of spatially distributed users to form a multi antenna transmit situation. A variety of algorithms for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) networks have been developed to achieve cooperative diversity gain. OFDM signals, however, have a problem with a high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) leading to lower power efficiency, which may significantly increase the user power consumption. In this paper, instead of conventional OFDM, we present the performance of cooperative network based on OFDM combined with time division multiplexing (OFDM/TDM) using minimum mean square error frequency-domain equalization (MMSE-FDE) in a frequency-selective fading channel. To fully exploit the channel frequency-selectivity and achieve a larger frequency diversity gain the equalization weights required for OFDM/TDM signaling based on MMSE criteria are derived.
