Title: Method and apparatus for removing pilot channel amplitude dependencies from RAKE receiver output

Abstract: A receiver utilizes pilot channel propagation channel estimates and a signal-to-interference metric derived from the pilot channel to form combining weights for use in obtaining soft symbols from a desired channel for subsequent decoding. The soft symbols thus obtained are substantially independent of the pilot channel amplitude.
