Distributed antenna network (DAN) is a promising wireless network to solve the problems arising from shadowing and path lesses as well as frequency-selective fading. Many antennas are spatially distributed around each base station (BS) so that with a high probability, some antennas can always be visible from a mobile station (MS). Recently, we proposed a 2-dimensional water-filling (2D-WF) transmit diversity for single-carrier (SC) DAN downlink transmission. An MS having single receive antenna was considered. In this paper, we extend the 2D-WF transmit diversity to the case of MS having multiple receive antennas to implement frequency-domain space-time block coded-joint transmit/receive diversity (FD-STBC-JTRD). The channel capacity distribution is evaluated by Monte-Carlo numerical computation method. It is shown that the use of 2 receive antennas maximize the downlink channel capacity while the use of around 5 distributed transmit antennas is sufficient.
