Differential space-time modulation (DSTM) for multiple antenna communication systems has been recently proposed for frequency-nonselective fading channels. In broadband multirate systems, frequency-selective fading may occur. In this paper, the DSTM in frequency-selective fading channels is considered. A linear equalizer for the DSTM is proposed over frequency-selective fading channels. Furthermore, the multiple symbol decision feedback detection is used to improve the performance of the linear equalizer.
