A distributed scheme is proposed for a cellular code division multiple access system in which each base station is served by three widely spaced sectored antennas, with each antenna site performing separate detection. At worst the error probability achieved at the base station is always equal to the minimum of those at each antenna site. With coherent signalling employed, the distributed detection has significantly increased system capacity over simple sectored antennas.
