    A design of non-orthogonal 3 × 3 space-time block code (STBC) is proposed. The proposed design achieves full rate, full level diversity, and maximum coding gain by symbol rotation (SR) method. In addition, the proposed scheme has lower encoding complexity than the unitary constellation-rotation (CR) STBC, while two methods exhibit the same bit error rate (BER) performance in Rayleigh fading channel.
