This document has been divided in 5 chapters. The rst one has consisted on an introduction to better understand the aims of this project, a brief description of the state-of-the-art and how the project is structured. Chapter 2 explains in detail how measurements are set and all the instruments involved with them. In Chapter 3 the statistical analysis of the channels is developed from the VNA measurements results. Chapter 4 investigates the diversity bene ts in terms of both BER and variance. Finally, Chapter 5 contains the nal conclusions of the project and future work. Actually, there is also Chapter 6, which is composed of the Annexes, where there is the complete set of measurements results and all the gures that were not shown in the document because of spatial reasons.
