Suppression of multiuser interference (MUI) and mitigation of multipath effects constitute major challenges in the design of third-generation wireless mobile systems. Most wideband and multicarrier uplink CDMA schemes suppress MUI statistically in the presence of unknown multipath. For fading resistance, they all rely on transmit- or receive-diversity and multichannel equalization based on bandwidth-consuming training or blind techniques. Either way, they impose restrictive and difficult to check conditions on the FIR channel nulls. Relying on symbol blocking, we design A Mutually-Orthogonal Usercode-Receiver (AMOUR) system for quasi-synchronous blind CDMA that eliminates MUI deterministically and mitigates fading irrespective of the unknown multipath and the adopted signal constellation. Analytic evaluation and preliminary simulations reveal the generality, flexibility, and superior performance of AMOUR over competing alternatives.
