Single-carrier distributed antenna network (SC-DAN), in which a group of multiple antennas are distributed in a cell serve a user, can mitigate adverse impacts of path loss, shadowing loss and multipath fading. Frequency-domain space-time block coded-joint transmit/ receive diversity (FD-STBC-JTRD) is attractive for downlink transmission since an arbitrary number of distributed transmit antennas can be used. FD-STBC-JTRD requires the channel state information (CSI) only at the transmitter side

In this paper, we investigate, by computer simulation, the bit error rate (BER) distribution of the SC-DAN downlink. We discuss the impact of the number of distributed antennas involved in FD-STBC-JTRD on the BER outage probability.
