|(54)||Transmit diversity scheme|
|(57) The present invention relates to methods for implementing transmit diversity in a telecommunication network. In particular there is provided an algorithm for performing transmit diversity encoding in a transmitter (100) and transmit diversity decoding in a receiver (1700) respectively. In the method processed pairs of data blocks (314.1 A, 314.1 B) are transmitted on a first antenna (112.1) on N sub-carriers in a first temporal order; and a second antenna (112.2) in the reverse temporal order.
