A new diversity receiver is shown for improving the COMA forward link modem performance. The diversity gain of the receiver is quantified using computer simulations in a flat Rayleigh fading channel. The new proposed diversity receiver structure is simple to implement. The achievable gains in link performance, relative to no diversity, range from 3 to 9dB wjth 2 and 4 antennas, respectively.
