The incorporation of the orthogonal frequency-(multiplexing (OFDM) with the space-time or space-frequency coding is a robust and effective method to achieve a transmit-diversity gain and to suppress an intersymbol interference for the broadband wireless transmissions. This paper is concerned with the downlink-performance improvement using multiple transmit antennas for the OFDM systems with a large delay spread. A delay-spread reduction method using space-frequency block coding and statistical prefiltering (SPF) was proposed, which combines signal prealignment and multiple transmit beamformers designed with the statistical knowledge of the downlink channel state information. The proposed method, which is called the SPF-OFDM, transforms a large delay-spread channel into multiple channels, each with small delay spread. Thus, it does not only shorten the effective excess delay but also preserves the path diversity through the use of the space-frequency coding. Computer simulations have evaluated the effectiveness of the proposed scheme, and comparisons have been made with the conventional solutions
