MIMO techniques implemented through STBC, is a highly viable and attractive option for outdoor mobile networks. This paper presents a measurement campaign aimed at characterising the outdoor MIMO channels in the 2GHz UMTS band. Initial results comparing the channel properties and post-processing analysis for STBC schemes are also included
