More specifically, the method includes transmitting at least one pilot symbol, at least one data symbol, and at least one null symbol, wherein the at least one null symbol is transmitted between transmission of the pilot symbol and the data symbol.
A power spectral density of at least one of the data symbol and the pilot symbol is then dynamically adjusted based on a difference between the PAR of the data symbol and a PAR of the pilot symbol.
In one embodiment, the data symbol is modulated to produce a modulated data symbol.
Two pilot tones are inserted into each of the first data symbol and the second data symbol.
This amplifier amplifies a given encoded data symbol in the encoded data symbols using an associated symbol-dependent gain prior to transmitting this encoded data symbol.
An allocation unit (103) allocates the Dch data symbol and Lch data symbol to each sub-carrier composing an OFDM symbol and outputs the allocated sub-carrier to a multiplex unit (104).
A combiner (75) multiplies the header amplitude of each header-detection signal and the data amplitude of the respective data symbol to generate a plurality of weighted elements for each data symbol.
Optionally, the data path may process a data symbol for a particular channel only of a predetermined amount of time has elapsed since a data symbol was processed for the data channel.
The method comprises transmitting a signal field, transmitting a first data symbol for a first data field, and transmitting a second data symbol for a second data field.
