Title: Data transmission method for dual diversity systems

Abstract: Methods for effectively transmitting data in dual diversity systems by utilizing Reed-Solomon coding is provided. Two Reed-Solomon (RS) coding schemes are considered for dual diversity systems: RS(n,k) codes with symbol diversity order of 2 and RS (n,k/2) codes with symbol diversity order of 1. We show that the second scheme utilizes the inherent error detecting capability of low rate RS codes. The RS (n, k/2) codes with symbol diversity order 1 significantly reduce the probability of undetected word error among accepted codeword and give comparable throughput to that of RS (n,k) codes with symbol diversity order 2.
