    A novel compensation decoding scheme for a given space time frequency linear block code is presented, exploiting the simplicity of zero forcing equalization, and special characteristics of the precoding matrix. The proposed decoding procedure is relatively simple and straightforward in comparison to maximum likelihood decoding (MLD) and sphere decoding (SD). The bit-error-rate performance of the proposed scheme is better than zero forcing decoding and close to MLD and SD for low to medium signal-to-noise ratio range.
